More Fires in Cali

7 07 2008

At the Needles this past weekend, we could see smoke from a new fire (started since our last visit to Kern County) burning east of Lake Isabella. Below is a GoogleMaps image of the fire, thanks to Kern County Fire Department.

It’s pretty crazy to be so close to a fire – we could easily see the big plume of smoke to the south and I’m sure Margee at the fire lookout has been busy with updates.

In other news, the Brickyard, a popular bouldering area in Santa Barbara, is also burning. Hopefully the fire won’t cause too much damage for the climbing up there.
