Here is a shot I took of smoke billowing up from the mountains recently during some bad forest fires (not quite what they usually mean by the "smoky mountains"). There were several fires burning a couple thousand acres in our area. The mountains should extend across the whole length of the photo but there is so much smoke most of the mountains cannot be seen here. Firefighters from several states had to come help for several days to get the fires under control.
