It’s not often we have a vividly colored sunrise during the summer months. When we do have them, normally it is the result of lingering smoke from a large forest fire, either in state or out-of-state. Over the past week, we’ve had two very colorful sunrises caused by smoke from the large West Fork Fire Complex in southwestern Colorado.

Over the past two days, we’ve had very little smoke from the West Creek Fire. This, in large part, is due to a shift to a more westerly wind direction. There is a bit more haze today, but not to the extent we experienced last week. Hopefully, it will stay away for awhile.
