Mars

That’s what it looked like around these parts earlier this week.  That pic was taken at 4:30 pm.  No filters or Photoshop trickery.  That was really it.

It started Sunday and lasted through Wednesday.  But Tuesday afternoon was the most vivid orange anyone could remember seeing.

BTW, those structures are what we call “T-Walls”, due to their shape.  Their purpose is to contain shrapnel should a mortar, rocket, or other explosive make its way to camp.

Luckily the dust has cleared out.  It’s taper week and I’m now 72 hours out from starting my 40-miler.  I’m looking forward to it.
