Shine on…Sturgeon Moon

Once in awhile we get a really spectacular viewer photo…today was one of those.  It’s this morning on Rockaway Beach.  The setting moon between Twin Rocks.  Don Best sent this one in.

    Between the smoke, heat and farmer’s working their fields, the air around here is like walking into a packed night club back in the 70s when smoking was allowed inside. My eyes are burning. 92 deg here and no wind. Choke, choke, cough, cough….
    Come on westerlies!

      I am quite concerned especially for the Olallie Lake Resort/scenic area as this area is tinder dry, lots of beetle killed trees, and the trees are very thick. As the onshore flow takes hold the westerly winds will be howling over the Cascades and I assume the fires will spread exponentially towards the east/northeast.

      I hope Olallie Lake escapes. That is a beautiful area that I’m looking forward to showing my wife once we get back to Oregon. If I recall correctly though the area along the north and east side of Olallie Lake actually did burn about ten years ago.

  5. Must be another fire on the west slopes of the north/central Cascades..
