Butte Fire From Jackson Overlook

This was the scene from the roadside rest/overlook area along Highway 49 just north of Jackson, CA. In the distance to the southeast is the Butte Fire raging in Amador and Calaveras Counties. I have often stopped here and even more often driven by it without stopping. Seeing it looking like this elicits a lot of feelings for me. I remember stopping here to watch the Canon Fire burning in Alpine County the day it started in the summer of 2002. This fire is much closer than that one was.
