Smokey sunset reflected in unnamed pond, Humphrey's Basin. In 2013, a raging fire burned on and on to the west of there Sierras. The winds pushed smoke from the Rim fire deep into the Sierras. In fact, the smoke even effected the air quality in Bishop! This sunset was very unique because of the smokey influence. Earlier in the day, a violent thunder storm rocked the area (which is over 11,000 feet high).
