Sierra Forest Fire in the Sky
Following an afternoon of spotty summer thunderstorms, the clouds began to spread and open as a quiet evening unfolded on the shores of Courtright Reservoir. As the light grew dimmer, a few flecks of pink and orange in the sky were only the foreshadowing to this colorful eruption from the west. For just a fleeting minute or two, the sky beamed a shimmering spectrum, and then darkness fell swiftly thereafter.
