Red Canyon Fire

New Castle, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I stopped to get some cold water in New Castle, and saw the smoke from the Red Canyon Fire in Glenwood Springs. I wondered why the traffic was backed up at that exit, and decided I would avoid it and go the long way instead. It is always slow getting through Glenwood Springs and that backed up traffic made my decision easy! Then I saw the smoke and the back up made sense. That red thing is the gas station canopy. Not pretty, but this was the clearest shot I had of the smoke.

We can't always have the perfect shots
when news reporting.

You did just fine, Kat.

Another sign of summer, isn't it. Almost makes one (a little bit) thankful for winters....

Breathe carefully, hope you are not in harm's way. Excellent image, thanks for taking the time to share!

Thanks, Gil! I imagine my 'long way' was the
shorter way, time wise.

Wowser! Hate to see these smoke plumes anywhere, but you got a good photo of it.
You made the wise decision I think of taking the long way route. Long backup lines are no fun, and especially if it's for a fire/smoke situation. Stay safe.
Congratulations on this VIP!
