Jackson Lake, Grand Tetons National Park

The smoke from the fires in Canada is still present dulling the beauty of the Grand Tetons National Park.  Our camp was at the extreme north end of the park and the three Tetons are hidden from view just behind the mountains on the far side of the lake.

A lot of the forest in this area was wiped out by the fires that swept through Yellowstone at this time last year.  Much of that in the distance is now barren.

More of the same here looking north but difficult to see in the photo.
Just consider the green along the shoreline should be the same green 
covering the mountains in the distance.

Sad the fires from Canada reach so far into the US with their smoke. Such a loss all those trees burning.

Such wonderfully wild country. Lets hope it will be preserved forever.

How long will it take to grow again?

The fires have been bad this year out west!
