Hello friends...as most of you know we evacuated to a campground about 30 miles from home yesterday because the huge wildfire was just getting to close to town.
This is what I viewed this morning....no smoke....clear air in all directions! I walked around snapping a few shots and was kept company by a couple friendly gulls and a fat chipmunk :)))
The fire continues to grow and no good news for our town at this time. However, there are rain clouds and storms popping up all over the area - hopefully one of these rainstorms will find it's way over the burn area and let go!!!
Thanks so much for the prayers, positive energy, and concerns. Your comments are treasured by me - wish I could answer them and let you know how much I appreciate but my internet connection time under the current circumstances is minimal.
If possible, will try to update again tomorrow....take care, and thanks again!!!
great shots and i'm keeping my fingers crossed for you to be back home safe in sound in the shortest time possible. keep the faith

All just gorgeous! Love the first one and of course the little friends..I have been there...remember the trail at the entrance I told you about! :-)))
Well these are certainly all beautiful shots... I'm glad you are in a better place!
I have a friend vacationing here (in Michigan) who left their home in Colorado Springs 2 days BEFORE the fire started. The fire is within 1/2 mile of her home, and they had no opportunity to take anything!
I hope you can enjoy your forced vacation....at least a little bit anyway.
It looks like you've parked yourself in a beautiful place, away from the danger. I'm sure the fires will end soon and you can return to your home. I just know it.
Looks like you had a great day! Animals especially chubby ones with a mouth full of grass make it a much better day!! Great shots! Hope Cliff caught dinner??? :+) Feel like having some human visitors??
I think you made a wise move. Hope you are now able to relax a little - but obviously you are still very concerned about your property and your neighbours.
If you look at my today's post, you will see that I did a rain dance for you, but unfortunately I got the coordinates wrong. The last thing we need for this summer, is MORE rain.
