This next entry is from Sassy in Oregon…
“Here are a couple of photos I fortunately happened to take earlier this summer. These are of Mt.Hood and part of the Cascade Mountain Range here near us. I say I was fortunate to get up there and shoot these ’cause from the sound of it, this little play area of mine and the guys (we also take the Bronco’s up here to play) is now gone, destroyed possibly by the Pit 36 Fire that is burning near Estacada, Oregon. Estacada is only 13 miles from us. At the moment, the fire has consumed 5400 acres and is only 40% contained. Hillockburn Rd. up below where we play was at level 3 evacuation, however as of this morning those residents are being allowed back. I’m looking forward to this fire being out and us being able to get back up on Hillockburn to see how bad it is.”
So… here are Sassy’s photos and I will put the fire photos in a little slideshow. A couple of the fire photos were taken by a fire fighter friend. They are quite dramatic!
