Smoke in the distance...  Looks more like a mushroom cloud.

All is clear at Big Bend and Marathon...

Don't see anything at BGWMA - but their cameras have gone static...

Last Saturday I got a chance to head down to the Davis Mountains and see what the fire had done. I didn't have as much time to look as I would have liked but was able to snap a few pics. No additional photos...but I talk about the fire a little on my blog: MyLifeOutdoors.com
