    Smoke-colored sun setting behind the Grand Mesa. The smoke is from the Pack Creek Fire about 100 miles distant.

    Wildfire season is back. Already. Smoke from the Pack Creek Fire, over 100 miles distant in Utah, colored this sunset.

    Smoke plume from Pack Creek Fire, about 100 miles distant

    The wildfire plume's first 100 miles, from the fire to my neighborhood.

    @gene_mcgill It's amazing how far wildfire plumes spread. We had some bad ones here in NC 4 or so years ago and could very easily see and smell the smoke over 50 miles away.

    @Photobug probably! But maybe this guy could take both of them (full disclosure: this pic was taken by one of my daughters). As an aside, we once got a behind the scenes tours of the polar bear area at the NC Zoo from my friend that worked there, and saw the very large male standing at full height maybe 8 feet away. Very impressive and intimidating animal, and I was quite glad for the heavy metal bars and locks in between the bear and me and my girls. Wasn't allowed to take any pics there but it was a really cool experience.

    Sounds like an incredable experience seeing them standing up.

    This was shot through a chain link fence with a wider aperture but there still is a shadow. Happy there was a fence between us.
