According to our local paper the huge blaze (see previous post) and, on Wednesday, the largest wildfire in the nation, is contained. Firefighters were able to protect human life and buildings. There was no mention of how many animals lost life and home. I doubt there would be any way to really know. However, fifty-two power transmission poles and lines were burned to the ground. The newspaper also said, "although the cause of the fire is still under investigation, he believes it was human caused."
Friday night DH and I went camping with a group. We enjoyed an evening around the campfire and the weather was comfortable for sleeping in a tent.
On the way home we stopped so I could take pictures of some birds along the river.
There were ibis--
and an egret with more ibis.
