An Understanding of Fire

Yosemite in fire season. Photo by author.

In 2018, we took a three week vacation to California, during which we road tripped around a good chunk of the northern part of the state, spent six days horseback (muleback, in my case) riding in the mountains…

…and ran headlong into fire season. The photo above was taken in Yosemite National Park two days before the Ferguson Fire forced the closure of most of the park. That haze isn’t fog.
