Sunsets during a fire are always mesmerizing
On Thursday, the skies were blue but there was a distinct smoke trail some 40 miles west. I had hoped to take some pics of it Friday but, the wind had changed. It was so smoky at the creek, I got an instant headache hiking.
This is the smoke line coming from 40 miles away!
There was also another fire much closer 8 miles or so down Chevy Chase Canyon. But the fire department made quick work of that and except for a freeway closure, there wasn't much of an issue with that one.
Smoke traveling up the canyon
Above is Mt. Lukens - tallest point in Los Angeles County. The "clouds" to the left is actually smoke from the Springs Fire. The right side is smoke from the Canyons fire as they were calling the Chevy Chase Canyon fire.
