Our friends at the top of Mount Washington posted a shocking photo from the summit today.

The staff at the Mount Washington Observatory shared this photo of the giant smoke plume from the mill fire in Mechanic Falls, Maine.

The staff at the Mount Washington Observatory noted that the visibility today was around 120 miles, so you can clearly see in to neighboring Maine and the smoke from the fire that consumed the mill today.
