In honor of the holiday, I am posting this pic of Golden Smoke. Let’s hope there is no other smoke seen in the area — earlier this week a small (1 acre) fire near Fern Lake was extinguished. THANK YOU FIREFIGHTERS AND PARK PERSONNEL! And the week before there was a small grass fire in the Big Thompson canyon. So be careful with those firecrackers! Enjoy the wildflowers instead! They are nature’s colorful fireworks.
