Pacheco Canyon Fire - Day 2

Fire update (as of 11am): 900 acres, moving east and north toward the Pecos Wilderness, with a Type 2 Incident Management Team arriving tomorrow. This picture shows today's afternoon flare-up. Lots of gusty wind to help it along!


Also starring in this photo is my 40 year old beetle, pressed into service until its younger driveway-mate (26 years old) gets a new timing belt and water pump, things that an air-cooled beetle can't understand.


And by the way, the fire is NOT in Pacheco Canyon, despite its name, but a little north of it, north of Aspen Ranch, along the Borrego Trail.
