along with some pics from crystal mountain yesterday afternoon, and today as we were being evac'd. there are deaths involved, although a local said they haven't released the info yet, but it was a farmers wife and possibly the farmer also, who was last seen trying to push his cows to a higher pasture.

Yea pretty crazy. We could watch the smoke and steam plume grow as the day went on yesterday. 10% humidity at the house. Hopefully they can get a handle on it if the winds die down today.

From the maps I was looking at yesterday, it seems like the southern edge of the fire is on the verge of encroaching on the Moody Hill and Crystal Mtn trails. As I recall, there are a lot of residences up around Crystal Mtn.
