This shot, taken from the International Space Station on April 19, 2002 at 1:37:55 p.m., shows forest fires in the mountains north of the Philmont Scout Ranch. Hot, dry conditions plagued the area for months. Notice the severe lack of snowpack on the peaks...and this was the month of APRIL!!! The camera is a Kodak DCS760C ESC with a 95mm lens. Orbital altitude: 240 statute miles.
