Even though wildfires are bad, they do provide unique photo opportunities. Anyone else have any wildfire related pictures? I took this today on bison peak

Related story: in 2003 I had just summitted Democrat (by a non-standard route) and was pretty proud of my 35 year old self. I was slightly crestfallen when I saw an "old" man (in retrospect he was probably mid-50's) on the summit. I was considerably more crestfallen when he took out a cigarette and lit it up, bragging to his buddies that he wanted to become the first person to smoke on the summit of every 14er.
