Picture of the Day - Disaster California-Style

This is one of those "only in California" darkly idyllic scenes featuring a pair of Adirondack chairs on a scenic hill surrounded by beautiful scenery with a world-class view into a distant national forest and wilderness area of a coast range of California. The only problem with the scene is it features a major flare-up of a nearly three-week-old now-60,000-acre wildfire, in this case called the Soberanes Fire burning in the Los Padres National Forest as viewed from Carmel Valley, CA. Per various sources this image shows the fire making a run up the side of Elephant Mountain. This image comes courtesy of Goldie of Carmel Valley (all rights reserved).
