I smelled it before I saw it. The smell of burnt earth, wood and houses. I can’t image what it was like when the fires were roaring thru here. It looks like another planet….still, lifeless, black and eerie. This highway was closed while the fires had their way. Closed a long long way. To see the landscape really puts it in perspective. What the firefighters were up against. It’s San Bernadino California–the heart of some of the worst fires. I can’t help but feel for the animals…..and wonder how they fared.
