The Smoky Mountains / by Tyler Baird

I decided on an impromptu trip up the Old McKenzie Highway to catch the sunset. Heavy smoke lingered in the area on the way up coming from the Eugene-side, but was quite clear at the top. I later discovered that the Milli Fire had begun the day before and would close the highway for the season shortly after my trip. I had brought my DJI Mavic Pro but had a helicopter operating in the area. I kept several pictures that I normally would have discarded only just to see the difference when the highway reopens.
