The scene pictured below is very unusual, but does require some explanation.
The cluster of tents and portable toilets is to support a fire fighting crew based at Fairhaven Middle School in Bellingham. The firefighters were deployed to fight a forest fire on Chuckanut Mountain south of Bellingham. This forest fir was taken very seriously with helicopter water dumps from lake Samish.
The light in the image is the sun. A week of dim light and poor air quality throughout much of Washington State.
