By now, most of the nation has heard about the tragic events that took place yesterday in Yarnell, AZ, just 25 miles up SR 89 from our town. Going outside here in town, you smelled the smoke and ash was falling everywhere. Today, that has cleared up, but there is still some smoldering visible up on Yarnell Hill. Damsel took this image looking north from the high spot just a half mile from our house. Click on the image to enlarge.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the firefighters and the civilian victims of this terrible disaster.
