A tree tent is a camping tent designed to be set above the ground, usually attached to or supported by the neighboring trees. Like a tent, it must be a complete enclosure that can house a camper and his or her gear while suspended off the ground. Like tree houses, a tree tent may be accessed via a rope ladder and provide a sheltered environment for recreation and various outdoor activities. The portable nature of this type of shelter provides for more versatile location choice than a conventional tree house or a camping tent.
They are used where the terrain is too rough and uneven to set up a tent on the ground. Also a good idea when camping in areas with dangerous creatures like snakes, venomous spiders, wild boars, man-eating ants and rabid skunks.
I took a look outside earlier this evening and was stunned to see heavy smoke had rolled in. More forest fires.
Forest fires between Red Lake and Bissett have spread smoke southwestward behind a cold front today. A southerly wind will push the smoke out the area by Saturday morning.
The street light glare highlight the smoke.
Previously hundreds of forest fires in British Columbia has sent smoke as far east as Winnipeg. Areas further west were affected way worse.

And a not so interesting spot. Great White breaches the surface off Cape Town.
