We did our normal trek this morning, and, because of the bad air, I couldn't wait to finish it.
After the hike we drove down to our local post office to mail a few bills. The air didn't look much better during our drive; and, now, in the late morning, the sun is shining through smoky haze in the most anemic fashion.
|Smoke from the Black Range Fire in the Gila Wilderness|
|Pimento Olive plant|
|Standing in yucca shade|
|New and the old|
|Across the desert floor|
|Frio and Willow|
|Smoke from the Aldo Leopold Wilderness fire|
|The rest: Desert Willow in our yard|
