Got smoke, but no flames. A “small” forest fire on Larch Mountain, on the Washington side of the river, visible on our way to the Clark County Fair.

Couldn’t have had a more perfect challenge for this week, almost every day this summer has started out with some kind of clouds!
This one doesn’t look like it so much now, but at the time I thought it looked somewhat like a lobster.
Red sunset courtesy of the smoke from the wildfires in eastern Washington, Oregon, and California. I’m not that keen on the smell of smoke, it makes me feel a bit on edge even when I know the fire’s nowhere close, but it does make for some interesting light.
Looks a bit like a postcard, doesn’t it? Looks like some thunder heads behind the mountains – Some pretty big ones showed up a couple of days ago and I took pictures of them, but the air was so hazy with smoke that you could hardly see them in the photos.
My entry for the first annual Sunday Stills give-away contest – if I don’t miss one, that its!
The art is from Mcmenamin’s Edgefield in Troutdale. We made our yearly trip to look around and Mom and Dad’s anniversary and getting the hay in early.
