The Fire at Dawn

So far we are lucky in Kihei that the smoke is going over us and not settling in town. The fire is still burning on this very steep and mostly roadless mountain forest preserve.

The sunrise added color to the smoke, an orange and yellow glow.

From experience with cane fires and their smoke I know that once the sun rises above Haleakala an eerie orange glow can be cast over Kihei. The surrounding air will appear orange and we will be enveloped in a strange sensation.
