Today is actually pleasant, but the fires have been discombulating here. Last night I could hardly sleep for the choking stench of stale burn, lightly sprinkled with rain a few days ago. Like God's barroom. Gave me a headache. Today the sky is a smudge, but it's not hot. There are still fires around and many planes flying surveillance, not to mention fire crews roaming the place, putting out as well as lighting fires. But this forest has had its visitation.
