The "Indians Fire" - Monterey County, California

This huge fire, 33,000 acres as of yesterday, is burning in Monterey County on California's Central Coast about 30 miles south of Salinas. When I was down there yesterday it looked as though the fire had been contained from spreading further north at the Arroyo Seco, a small river valley the empties into the Salinas Valley. They had set a back fire while the winds prevailed from the north and the two fires had merged giving rise to hopes the fire would then burn itself out. Let's hope they are right.

Wow! Pretty amazing. I hope it will not spread. Too bad you can't get some of those rains in the middle of the country.

Blog is looking great!
