The Bear Paw Bay Fire
When I was in Teton National Park the first few days the Bear Paw Bay fire was far off in the distance. The last 2 days we were there it was getting closer. The colors in the smoke were really fascinating. By the way this fire was started by lightning.
Here are some of the pictures I took of the fire.
The look of the fire changed by the hour. We could actually see the flames several time but alas I have no pictures of that.
Its been raining here all day and that weather is headed into the parks. Hopefully it will put out the fire. It was interesting to see all the colors of the smoke, it really had a beauty about it. It is interesting that something that is so destructive is also beautiful and renewing.
