Fire

There is a fire growing in Northern Colorado. This is like the 4th major fire already this year - its crazy... but the smoke and sunsets - wow...





My dad is not on this fire. I think I am pretty glad about that - he worked pretty hard on the Stuart Hole fire, and the Haymen fire... he was already worn out!! Plus its a type 1 incident that moves it out of the hands of the smaller fire departments....

PS - we are totally safe - it is about 60 miles to the west of me, and 20 miles from my parents ...its just *that* big

It is very dry in northern Wyo too, and we are worried about fires this summer

Beautiful and awesome photos...you have a great ability to take such stunning pics.

My heart goes out to the families who have been directly affected by the fire.

Amazing photos from such a terrifying event. I heard about the fire on the news; glad you have some cushion of space away from it.

I have posted a few sky photos on my blog this year, but I have not actually seen sky that was affected like this since I started taking the time to appreciate the view. Thank you for sharing, and stay safe.

I was out in Colorado the year the big fires hit almost all of Yellowstone National Park. I remember those sunsets and skies being some of the most gorgeous I had ever seen. Praying you all stay safe!
