This is not going to be a good summer if the rains don't come soon. Sedona, has a really bad fire going on. Can't get it under control because of all this awful wind. It is very beautiful country up there. Tall pines and beautiful color mountains.
I drove up Oak Creek Canyon on my first really big trip in my Class C. We had pulled over to stop for breakfast in the area as I missed my turn and was having a bad trip up to that point due to many detours. Those very old and historical buildings have had to be evacuated. Over 100 business' in the area have been evacuated and many campgrounds and homes had to be evacuated earlier at the onset of this fire 3 days ago. There are fires in Sierra Vista also. Some have been set by some fools thinking maybe it was fun. What is wrong with people these days. Warnings have been out for months already about the very high fire danger.
I hope everyone will be safe and especially the Fire Crews. I pray you all return home to your families safe.
This is where we stopped before heading up the Canyon these beautiful and historic buildings are in the line of fire
Please be aware of what you are doing. Don't throw lit cigarettes out your windows, makes sure all your fires are dead out, watch for your sparks and don't drive over dead grasses.
Each year we are loosing more an more of our beautiful forests due to carelessness. If you love our countries forests learn to protect them.
Good Night All
