I happened to be in Lee Vining, California when the Walker fire near June Lake erupted. It was pretty frightening to see the fire raging uncontrollably and so close to town. Adding to that feeling was the fact that I had just left Humboldt County where lightning fires near Ruth Lake and Blocksburg had the entire area in a stir. On the way down south I passed by the Rocky fire which burned close to seventy thousand acres around Clear Lake. After the seeing the Walker fire, I headed down to Sequoia National Park and came across the Rough Fire. It's been interesting and scary to see the effects of bad forest management and the climate change coming together this year.
