Wildfires are common in the west at this time of year. On our mountain, we have been covered in a blanket of smoke for days, and I don't know how long it will last.
While I yearn for a day with clean fresh air, and feel concern for my horses and the wildlife, I do have one consolation. The smoke has a beautiful effect on the moon, giving it an orange color.
I will continue keep a watchful eye on the fires, and wait with anticipation for clear skies.
