God bless every one of them for their help here, Katy. I am constantly amazed at all the areas we are receiving help from. My husband even saw a truck from New York! I guess that means you don't need them there, and that is a very good thing.

You are right, these kinds of photos are frightening to look at for those of us who live in forests. Unfortunately, they have become an all too real part of summer every year.

Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, I get that very frightened and panicky feeling, looking at your photos. I know it's part of what we expect, when we live in fire-prone areas, but... when it 'hits home,' it is so very devastating and shocking.

Hundreds of Alaska's firefighters are already down there, and several more crews have been released, and were sent down yesterday, more crews are jetting down there today.

I fell so sorry for them too, Linda. We already had a bear come down, and I bet there will be many more.

It is a GORGEOUS shot, Lori, but I am SO sorry to hear of all your fires. My heart always breaks for all of the wildlife in it's path,
as well as for all of you.
