|This beach, I think.|
The fire is now 65% contained and has burned about 400 acres. Fires are burning all over the west.
Here is a link to the initial news story about the fire, when it began on August 3rd.
The above link will eventually probably not function.
The photo shown in that news link seems to show this same area, from this photo I took from the batteries, out toward the Columbia River.
Gosh darn it, I hate to hear of a fire in that area. Glad it's almost put out. There are so many fires burning. Tonight also on the news, said 160 miles of highway 84 in eastern Oregon are now closed due to a massive fire, that went from zero acres to 7000 very quickly there. No more campfires allowed in the woods, even at campgrounds, I think I heard, too.
I don't like to think about the beautiful area I just visited burning like that. There are elk herds and deer and so many animals out there too.
