Climate Geoengineering: Taking note

The featured image shown above was taken by me over the skies of western Wyoming in February of 2018. Through all my travels in recent years, however, I realized this was not an isolated sighting of what is being termed “chemtrails”. I’ve seen these over the skies of SD, MN, and WI.

While easier to avoid at local farmer’s markets, not so much at many regional grocers.
