Smoke from High Park Fire
This afternoon, Lynne took this photo looking south-east of the huge smoke plume from the fire. Even though it is probably 25 miles away (as the crow flies), it is very scary and unsettling to see. I just can’t imagine what it is like to be one of the people evacuated and much closer to the fire.
It may be hard to tell the smoke from the clouds, but the stuff you see right on the horizon in the right third of the photo is smoke, as is the gray smoke just off the horizon blowing to the left.
