Moon Lake Fire

Uploaded by: katy99780

Tok, AK (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Moon Lake Fire, a new lightning cause fire, ignited yesterday, torching and running strong this evening.

I didn't have the tripod, I didn't have the remote shutter. But I did have the dash of the car on which to set the camera.

Thanks Charlotte and Larry.

We don't get away from the smoke Larry, when it's in our area. We just wait for the wind to change.

But we don't have TICKS! :P

Ticks and fires, both bad this year. Guess I will take the ticks! How do you get away from the constant smoke?

I hate fire season! The fires this year seem
huge and out of control! I get really edgy. I
hope you are not in any danger from this one!
Stay safe, my Friend!
