The day before, the Gladiator fire appeared to be heading directly east, probably in the area of the I-17 intersection you passed through the next day. When you passed through this area I suspect the major part of the smoke was again heading east and contributing to the smell of smoke you experienced. The I-17 intersection you mention is quite far from Dewey and in a different direction. There was no smell of smoke when I left at 1:30 to head north of Williams, and no smell of smoke when I got back at 8pm. I definitely would have had a good eclipse experience at Dewey had I stayed in Dewey, and it would have save me about $20 in gas money!
