    This is gorgeous, still I find it very sad because I know what it is. You captured how huge it has become. Recently we had some fires here too and while it was nothing compared to this it was still very very scary.

    Thank you so much for taking this shot! I am the historian for Glen Eyrie and The Navigators, and this haunting picture of the fire in our beloved and familiar canyon is extremely powerful.
