I hiked down a narrow trail in almost complete darkness as ash fell from the sky from the forest fires raging beyond the mountains you see at the horizon. This was shot just a day before it the roads were shut down because of fast spreading Sprague forest fires. Montana had 21 simultaneously active fires last fire season covering over 438,000 acres of land, the worst in the states recorded history. Global warming is real and we must act now!
