The Quail Fire that is threatening homes in Alpine (including my parents’) jumped into the next canyon South. This canyon is heavily vegetated and is burning with gusto. It’s the last major canyon before it reaches the part of the mountain against which my parents live. Firefighters have saved every house so far. Let’s hope their streak continues.
It is sad to see “my mountain” transform the way it is. Everywhere the fire has touched, all the color has been sucked away.
They’re sending in some firefighting big guns tonight. Let’s hope this gets under control soon. Right now it is at zero percent containment.
