Glad you are OK. Hard to to believe a second fire has occurred in the same area this year. It certainly picked up fast, as we watched, from Mammoth, the smoke rise up on Saturday afternoon. Sep 20, 2016

It was pretty crazy being trapped that close to the wall of fire. Went from a small grass fire to full on blaze in about 30 min. We were very lucky that the parking area just had burned otherwise things may have come out a lot dif. Made some new buds shared food n beer n made the best of it. Drive out first light. Had to clear burning trees from the road n all. Only bad thing is a shit load of my draws were left in the initial confusion. Me thinking my partner had them n him thinking I had them. 8( won't be climbing for a while since it was pretty much all of them.. Sep 20, 2016
