Drought and Fire

In the morning the mountains are still shrouded in what I discover is smoke from fires in the area. I drive as close as I can to Grand Teton so that I can see some details and I see that there still appears to be little veins of snow around the peaks of the mountains. The lake in front of the mountains is kept full by a dam on the snake river but droughts have brought the water level down and the floating piers are sitting in the mud on the buoys and the canoes are trapped in cut off waterways.
