On our return-home journey we did see a wonderful sky over the bay with a circumhorizon arc and a 22 degree halo visible together. Did manage to get a shot of that. You know how much we love the splendors of an ephemeral sky.
On the way south we noticed some smokiness just north of the town of Laytonville. We knew it was a fire, and checked the CalFire Incident page when we got to the beach. It was the Lodge Complex fire that had started on July 30th by lightning strike. When we drove through on our way south it was 900 acres. On our way north six days later, it had grown to 10,000 acres (and only 40% contained). Here's what it looked like as we headed north.
Summer is fire season in California. This is what it looks like. Welcome to our world. We're glad to be home.
