Fire in the Sky - Again

Fire season is upon us here in North Central Washington state. There are several fires burning including one near Lake Chelan. When I stepped outside this evening, not only could you see the smoke wafting down valley but you could smell it. Brings back memories of last year. Not good memories either.

I can only hope the idiots with fireworks are smarter than I give them credit for and they don't shoot them off tonight. We do not need a fire here in the Methow Valley. Conditions are ripe and the wind is blowing. It wouldn't take but a small spark to ignite a large fire.

Vibrant Sunset

Hope your Fourth of July was happy and safe!


  1. Beautiful images. The fires are scary but the smoke does make lovely sunsets. Hope you had a happy and safe 4th of July!

  2. Very beautiful, but I hope you don't have any fires start by you (oh anywhere for that matter)

  3. I was wondering were that smoke was coming from! We got home from Brewster fireworks around 11, and it was so strong smelling, we thought the fire was near by. I hate to say this, but I wish it was October.

  4. Very glad to live in a place where fireworks are not allowed. Hope all is well, you're safe, and the smoke dissipates quickly.

  5. We read about the Wenatchee fire while still in Florida and I thought about you and your last fire season. Now back in Oregon ... And it is so dry here even on the western side. I hope you are safe. Do keep us posted.

  6. Just checking in Sally. Hope you are doing well.
