Tourism Leaders Assess The Un-Smoky Summer

Many of the region's tourist spots girded for another smoky summer, and for nothing.  In the Shakespeare hotspot of Ashland, only one weekend featured smoke levels into the unhealthy range. 

But trying to second-guess fire season and the weather affected both people in the tourism business and the tourists themselves; many changed their plans for this year based on last year's heavy fire season. 

We get a wrap-up on the summer behind us from the perspective of Travel Ashland, the Shasta-Cascade Wonderland Association, and Discover Klamath.Katharine Cato from Ashland visits with Laurie Baker from Redding and Jim Chadderdon from Klamath Falls.
