Where exactly did the mysterious fog rolling down Fruita's Little Salt Wash come from? It wasn't cold last Sunday evening.

If you made your way down the Little Salt Wash Trail west of Fruita Sunday evening, March 19, you were witness to a strange, and somewhat out of place, fog bank rolling down the wash. Since when does that happen?

Unfortunately, while it looked like fog, it was actually smoke rolling in from local burning. The smoke remained low to the ground, giving the appearance of fog.

Granted, while the smoke in the air made the setting a bit unpleasant, the view was magnificent. A few hikers and skateboarders were a bit perplexed by the misplaced "fog."
