Intermontane areas create their own special type of smog.

Silence speaks loudly for those who dare to listen
There are many things that amaze me about deserts but sound, or should I say lack of sound, amazed me the most. The deafening peace of deserts will suck all life’s anxieties right out. There is so little to hear that any sound you hear is amplified greatly. The caw of a vulture, whistling winds or howling coyotes sound as if they were right with you though far away.
This photo was taken on my second trip to Grand Teton National Park. After four months of travel I couldn’t wait to see those shooting peaks that changed my geographic focus. But when I got there I could barely see them from the smoke of a wildfire. I was so disappointed but the colors of sunset brightened my outlook. Without the smoke this sunset would have been much different.
