'Tis The Season


Unfortunately 'tis the season for wildfires that plague the Sierra Nevada's and Cascade mountain ranges this time of year.  With beautiful summer weather also comes mountain storms and lightning.  I was just informed this evening that our hikers Amy (Legs) and Allan (Powerhouse) are to be detoured from a section of the PCT due to the 15,000 acre Chips fire in the northern Sierra's.  With only 10% containment, locals are being prepared for the worst with some evacuations in process.  I hope to bring more pics and an update soon.

Hi Autena,
Yes, it really is and I feel for those who may have to evac due to this. Not sure yet how much of a detour as there are fires burning as far as Shasta, we'll see. Thanks for stopping by and hope you've enjoyed a nice summer thus far! Have a wonderful day.

Hi Miss Anon, LOL! We love and miss you too and think it was a wise decision to stay out of harms way. Enjoy your stay and see you in a month or two. XoXo
