The Gallery Fire, as it was named originally, started this date.

If you would like to see a blow-by-blow account of the first 5 days, complete with photos and maps by one who knows the back country like no other, click the link below:

Here is a photo taken that day at 7:30 pm by Dave Egbert after he was released from the fire. Thanks, Dave for sending this and allowing me to share it with my readers.


Here is one I took the next day from my house.
Smoke Dance
I call this “Smoke Dance.”

Happy Solstice and Happy Father’s Day! Don’t forget the rally at the State Park today, starting at 2 pm. Should be a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I have to work today, but I’ll be thinking of all of you celebrating souls, wherever you may be.

  1. Do you know if any of the trails are still closed from the fires last summer?

  2. Limekiln SP and its trails are closed for an undisclosed period of time. For details on current trail conditions, or to post a question regarding a specific trail, I suggest the VWA trailworks forum linked to the right under blog roll.
