Clear conditions

By Bryan Dorr

KLONDIKE, Ore. - The weather conditions were prime for clear blue skies and high visibility over norther central Oregon late Tuesday afternoon.

Light northwesterly flow winds, low humidity and the lack of any nearby wildfires provided deep blue skies and crisp visibility. The temperatures were in the mid to upper 80s around 7 p.m.

Mt. Hood, towering in the distant fifty-seven miles away as the crow flies, appeared clear and crisp above Klondike's vast waves of wheat fields and the forest of gargantuan wind turbines.
