Fire-enhanced Sunset

I took a little break from breathing clean air at home in order to check the fire's potential for creating an amazing sunset.  Not as spectacular as I anticipated, but I did have fun watching four helicopters land after an amazing day of firefighting.  Helicopters still seem like magic to me, and the pilots must have nerves of steel.  Tomorrow I'll continue the saga of a local ditch.


  1. Sunsets about the same here since there are several fires south and east of us...

  2. Joe, better to have a red sunset from the smoke, than a red horizon from all the flames!

    I've been reading about the fire, and recognizing some of the places that I visited for flowers earlier this year. I hope that it can all be contained soon, and that the people who live in the area are all safe.
