This is a horrible disaster. Great photo series. 10s on all. Have looked at this series, 2 or 3 times. Had thought I had commented on this one, but looking back I did not see it. Poor Memory. Hope & Pray for this fire to be put out soon. Been going on far too long now.
Congrats on the Great AC photo.

Sadly, fire on the turnaround, over ran Camp Tuolomne and it did NOT survive the fire. Aug 24th.

That is way too close a call.

Great capture, however.

Congratulations on your AC.

Congrats on the Blue, sorry for the fire! Nice reporting of it and I sure hope things settle down quickly. Had an Uncle and .aunt who lost their home in the fires hate to see anyone lose their home. Thanks for sharing.
