Sneffels in the clear today, but a pretty good fire blowing up on the West End of Montrose County, somewhere around Nucla, I believe. Looks like Junction is getting the brunt of that smoke plume.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.
"Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion. From their lofty summits I view my past, dream of the future and, with an unusual acuity, am allowed to experience the present moment. On each journey I am reborn." - Anatoli Boukreev
