The Grand Tetons ablaze in early morning alpenglow. I was lucky to have two clear mornings as the wildfires both here and in Yellowstone created a lot of smoke.

    Lovely Gary. Have the wold fires caused a lot of damage?

  • Thanks Rosemaree. The Bear Paw fire is in a remote location, caused by a lightning strike on Aug. 30. It was spreading towards a previous burn area, so hopefully that will contain it. I believe the park service is now trying to contain them.

    It is so sad when wild fire happens but I suppose it is part of natures way of regenerating itself

  • It is sad, but true, part of the natural process. Rocky Mountain National Park can use one, especially on the west side, to get rid of the pine beetles. Most of the trees are gone anyway, this would be a good thing to finally kill off the beetles and start a new forest. Sure would be ugly for many years, though. But it’s ugly now.
