On July 16, there were no less than three fires in the area surrounding Camp Verde, and the smoke output was impressive. At times the smoke completely obscured the sun, but as the sun set and it neared the lower edge of the smoke cloud, it began to glow a bright cherry red. There's no doubt summer is a dangerous time in Arizona, for several reasons, but there's also no doubt the wonders of the sky continue to amaze.
