Severe clear day atop Blue Sky Basin.
Lone Joshua Tree, between Las Vegas and St. George Utah.
Was walking to Barnes and Noble near DePaul University in Chicago (which turns out isn’t a real Barnes and Noble but just the campus bookstore) and walked straight into a huge northside hothouse melee. This building backs up to the El tracks and shut down the red and Brown lines, and the heat and high winds didn’t help either.
I came home smelling like a campfire, but got an up close view of the Chicago police and fire departments at their best.
