We traveled over the Cascade Mountains to the little town of Winthrop where we planned to spend the week camping at Pearrygin Lake.  It is a pretty little lake and we had spent time there in the past.   The kids love being there.

The second day there was a thunder storm with lightning flashing all around.   The next day we began to see smoke. This is a rugged area with mountains and was very dry.

We left the following morning,  the fire was near and growing.  It is a huge fire, still burning, covering 370 miles and using 2900 men so far.  You can read about it here.  It was thought that the fire would be out by now, but it definitely is not.  These photos are the few we took, see others at Bing.

Please pray with us for the safety of the people and their homes.
