Raw Rocky Fire Footage
Linsis, my sis by another mother, Tweeted me the Youtube link to this raw Rocky Fire footage and I find it fairly awesome. Being rather familiar with the Highway 20 corridor along which most of this footage was captured I find this especially fascinating and disturbing at the same time. I sure wish I was up there right now! Note how photogenic this fire continues to be and how aggressively it continues to burn. The area of this fire is especially suitable for sustaining aggressive burning, but this year's ongoing drought has created ignition conditions generally considered unprecedented in the experience of the fire service in California.
