Wildfires blazing near you
Palm Springs area Fire
We live in the high desert near Palm Springs. I took these pics of the "Mountain Fire" last week showing the smoke which came over 20 miles to our town. The smoke sometimes actually covered our little town. The smell & smoke lasted for a couple of days. There is currently a new fire which broke out today near Banning and the smoke is again coming 'up the mountain' passing through & around our town & Joshua Tree Park.
Our thoughts are with all of the people & critters in the fire area.
