This photo was taken at Canyonlands National Park on a day when visibility was extremely limited by smoke from wildfires. We had experienced this 2 years ago, at Glacier NP. But then, the fires were only 10-15 miles away. This smoke was coming from California, hundreds of miles away.
The limited visibility can seem frustrating; you can’t really see want you were hoping to see. If your eyes aren’t “open”, you’ll miss a blessed experience.
