Western Wildfires

We've lived in the foothills of the Cascade mountains for almost fifteen years, but we saw something new last night - a wildfire on the western side of the mountains. John saw the smoke before I did.

We watched it spread, then the arrival of helicopters carrying water.

Go get 'em, guys.

What a grim show from our deck. I have a new sense of respect for the people who specialize in fighting forest fires.
