15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Smokey Sunset

Here in Pendleton Oregon, we are covered in a thick layer of smoke as our state and our neighbors burn in one of the worst wildfire seasons that I have seen. The smoke is so thick that from town, we can barely see the Blue Mountains. The air quality is very bad, forcing everyone to remain indoors. Today, I could smell the fire that is burning in the mountains, on Meacham Hill. Please pray for rain for the Pacific Northwest.
