this weekend I took a hike up into the Pine Creek area of Paradise Valley in the Absaroka Mountains.
This area had a major fire that burned for over a month until some snow finally put it out. Still there is some smoke flumes coming off the deep recesses of the mountains.
The trees had beautiful gold and yellow colors and of course the sky had the lovely clouds and the rock formations were pretty awesome too. Hopefully, I captured the grandeur of this area this time of year for you viewers.
