It was a hazy, smoky day in Wyoming when we spent some time in the Grand Teton National Park. In September and October, western states’ wildfires would mar many of the images on our trip.

The photo must have been taken by a mobile device and edited by that device (or another mobile device.) This image was captured in August 2014 from a cruise ship on our way to Alaska and points north. Continue reading →
