Fire in Gila National Forest, New Mexico, USA – June 28th, 201333.6N 108.6W
Smoke from a large fire in the Gila National Forest, in New Mexico, west of the Rio Grande (running parallel to the right edge), can be seen fanning out over a great area as it blows westward. The Gila National Forest covers approximately 2,710,659 acres (1,100,000 ha) of public land. Terrain ranges from rugged mountains and deep canyons to semi-desert. Due to the extremely rugged terrain, the area is largely unspoiled.
