Damn! It was probably one of the most intense sunsets I have witnessed here in Boulder. Lasted maybe for 3-4 minutes, but damn, those were some spectacular few minutes. Worth every step getting up to the Mount Sanitas, enjoying those fantastic views, fresh air – it was not bad tonight, and good drink, fantastic hike 😎.
Statement of the day: “This climate change is f***ng real”
By mid morning we learned that another wild fire just started around Jamestown and by late afternoon it was pushed by the winds through the Left Hand Canyon all the way to HW36.
I saw at least dozen flights into the smoke, I assume they were dropping fire containment powder. The negative impact is probably huge and will not be known for some time. Keeping fingers crossed, the wind does not push it south towards Boulder. It was all clear that way tonight, not like the crazy mess last night.
Another interesting sunset with all those forest fires impact on the air quality.
Yesterday sunset was a bit apocalyptic. At first it looked pretty clear but as soon as sun went behind the Indian Peaks, it illuminated all the smoke in the clouds. On the front photo you might be able to spot a little spark. Airplane or alians? Leave it to your wild imagination 😃
And to the east it’s almost full moon, breaking up through all that smog.
