Smoke Plume from the Calf Canyon Fire

A typical northern New Mexican scene — with the exception of the giant smoke plume in the background (photo taken two weeks ago). I first posted about this fire five weeks ago; it’s hard to believe it’s still going strong. Worse yet, the Forest Service announced a couple of days ago that, not only has this been the largest wildfire in New Mexican history, both parts of it were caused by the Forest Service itself. Heartbreaking.

I’ll stop posting wildfire photos when the fires end.
