Smoke plume rising Friday afternoon, May 13, from the Hermit’s Peak/Canyon Fire in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Photographed from Placitas over the Cuchilla de San Francisco. I could see several plumes rising south to north along 40 miles or so of the range. The Forest Service briefing Friday evening suggested this plume rose from the Elk Mountain area, west of Las Vegas. Go to Facebook and Santa Fe National Forest and #hermitspeakfire for much more photography and video.
