Cold Fire Burns just North of Cold Canyon (8/3/2016)

Almost exactly one year from the start of the Wragg Fire, the Cold Fire burned the area just north of Cold Canyon.  It covered nearly the same area as the Monticello Fire did in 2014.  Three years now of annual fires in this area: what will 2017 bring?

On the second day of the Cold Fire, I drove toward Winters to take a look at the smoky sky.  The setting sun was an unearthly pink.  While the smoke had not reached the country intersection where I made these drawings, the road was engulfed in smoke by the time reached the outskirts of Winters.
