Hey you all! Been a while since I have posted up over here.

Seems as if Moody and Crystal are spared so far, although West white Pine may get it on the SW corner of the fire area. If you look at Ige's photo of the "Mushroom" on Saturday, you will see East White pine mountain to the left and all of the beetle kill on the south face. Today East White Pine was burning near the summit. Now it seems that the southerly wind is pushing the north end beyond the river at Steven's gulch an evacuation order for Glacier View was given a few hours ago. Small smoke plumes litter the foothills from the west end of Bellevue where the fire was coming down on Monday/Tuesday. I would get pictures, but it is so black that the glare would not allow for a good picture in the afternoon.
