Fire in the Hills

We had a bit of excitement here over the last couple of days. "The Summit Fire" started early Wednesday morning in the Santa Cruz mountains. It grew rapidly to about 4,000 acres high up a box canyon driven by strong winds. Then last night the marine layer formed bringing with it fog, cooler temperatures and less wind. The fire grew very little today and should be under control by tomorrow or the next day. There has been no loss of life or injuries as of yet and only a few domestic animals were lost.

I shot these pictures from about a mile and a half from the fire. That was close enough for me.
