From 49 you couldn't see anything, but I got a better perspective where it was. The Middle Fork of the Cosumnes crosses Highway 49 about 5 miles (only an estimate) beyond Plymouth and then runs along the side of the road for several miles. Another 5 miles or so is Sand Ridge Rd. and where Sand Ridge crosses the river is where the fire was (or somewhere close). I didn't drive up Sand Ridge because they've had enough grief and don't need any lookie loos.
What I did see on the way across was a bunch of Cal Fire trucks heading away from the fire area. When I say a bunch, I'm thinking somewhere in the area of 30 to 40 or maybe more.
|Most of them looked like this one|
I talked to the guys at the RV place (my destination) and they said many of the trucks were heading to the fire down by Yosemite.
So that's it, we're all good for now.
