Sand Fire

I checked the air quality before I took off on my morning hike around 7:30. Smoke from the Sand Fire, which started along the 14 freeway around Sand Canyon, some 15+ miles from us, infiltrated Acton Valley over night.

Taken at the furthest place from our house that I reached today on my quest to appease my new Fitbit Alta, about a mile and a half away.  Early in the day, there was no plume.

Shortly after the first photo, the plume raised its head again. It is on the far left of the horizon. Sundry’s Mountain and Hydra’s cairns are to the far right. This means that the flames are rising with the heat of the day. It wasn’t even 9 a.m. yet.

Our hearts are with the firefighters out there. It’s supposed to get up to 103 today and you can bet it’s much hotter where they are. #Sandfire will help you find news on Facebook, Twitter and generally online.
