Our friend got her horse out - the horses headed out to a different area where they were able to access the herd from another road in time. I've heard from others that they aren't doing so well. Evacuations continue.
The big fire still rages out of control. Firefighters are working, now more than 50 hours straight.
Here at the lake, we are safe. But here's a video showing how quick it can change (this was a beautiful park, a real jewel in this area that has been a goal of mine to ride at. Now, it's 90% gone.).
Interactive map of the fires is available here.
I was hoping without the big winds it would be out by now. But after watching that video I realize that we are just one giant tinderbox.
I find myself even missing the mosquitoes which have been non existent this summer. Because there is no standing water anywhere.
This would be a good time for a miracle.
