Fire Behind Rising Wolf

Forest fires have become common occurrences in our western states, a consequence of global warming, and our national parks are not immune.  On this date we could enjoy the facilities of our campground at Two Medicine Lake, but other areas of the park were closed off, including those just north of the distinctive peak of Rising Wolf.  The glow of the fire is reflected by the smoke in the sky in this startrail exposure.
