Here a few photo's I took last night and first thing this morning.
|Around 4:00 pm|
|Around 5:30 pm|
|About 6:30 pm|
We had dinner outside since the electric shut off about 6:00 pm. I tried to catch one of the water dropping helicopter as it passed right our house.
|Traveling pretty fast.|
|Too fast to get a really clear shot.|
|One of the last for the night|
The Mokelumne River canyon is also one of the most protected watersheds in the area. Unfortunately only the firefighters can protect it now.
|Looking SE from our back yard this morning.|
After thinking about this fire and how they can jet up a canyon I decided to stay home too. Although the "secret" lake is a long way from where the fire is I didn't want to take the chance of getting caught up in that canyon. We'll go another day.
