A red fox spotted near the Maroon Bells visitor center.

Saturday, August 18 was a beautiful day at the Maroon Bells. A much-needed rain greeted us in the morning, with the entire Maroon Creek valley overflowing with clouds. As the clouds lifted, the vegetation felt lush and animals soon began to stir. Before long, a red fox emerged to enjoy the freshly moistened montane meadow in the shadow of the picturesque Maroon Bells. Surprisingly, this fox showed little to no fear of humans, walking right up to a group of people waiting for the bus.

Smokey Skies from Aspen Mountain

Persistent smoke the past few days isn’t just from local fires. Due to an extremely unusual configuration of the jet stream, much of the West is being blanketed in smoke from wildfires raging in California.
