I flew into salt lake frequently and normal was 40+ miles visibilty, but things have changed in salt lake too. Phoenix was 40+ miles visibilty too, not now. las vegas cavu. there were many days in the western USA when you could see to the horizon in all directions in an airplane, now there are many areas in the west where you don't have cavu (clear air, visibilty unlimited) days. in fact cavu is rare now. here in central texas 7-10 miles visibilty is normal. the air quality in the USA is not good anywhere IMO, on most days. that bad air from s. cal. drifts here all the time lowering our air quality.
