They kicked us out of Metzler Park camping yesterday in Estacada. Smoke coming down Clackamas canyon. Big fire near 3 Lynx. Praying for the locals welfare...
Where did the map come from and what are the red dots? Here in Glide this morning it’s only 50 with very light winds but really smoky.
Diamond Lake Campground 2:30AM - USFS Ranger pounding on my camper door telling me that there was a Level3 evacuation due to forest fire. I could see the red glow in the sky to the north but with the wind coming out of the south knew I had time to pack up and leave.Now there's a fire close to Diamond Lake so the resort and campground where evacuated.
The Oregon Governor has just issued a state wide conflagation declaration, a first in Oregon's history. Looking at Windy, by this evening the strong east winds pushing these fires will begin to slow up, which will help with containment.
