Wildfire Smoke and Fireweed

The skies have been extremely hazy lately due to the wildfires in California and locally near Kremmling. The air has a strong scent of camp fire. It may be somewhat difficult to tell from this photo, but this entire basin had a low hanging haze similar to fog. Typically the field next to the cabin holds a nice collection of assorted wildflowers that peak in late July / early August, but this year they were all gone aside from these last patches of Fireweed.
