There is a HUGE wildfire burning just east of the San Gorgornio wilderness, my favorite area in the San Bernardino mountains.

Where I was over the 4th was up at the top of this area, a campground called Heartbar.

Here's a quote from the Forest Service

Fire officials are closing some of the roads in the Onyx Summit area and will be contacting campers in the Heart Bar area to alert them that the campground may be closed if the fire continues to approach.
I will be very sad if it gets there.

This thing is close to 40k acres and completely out of control. I am sitting in the Las Vegas airport at the moment, and you can see the smoke ribbon over the city. It even smells of smoke in the terminal. And it isn't because there are smokers in the bars and gambling areas.

I hope the fire burns itself out before it reaches your favorite wilderness areas.

They have cut lines around it. They did an evac, I hope the nice host ladies are OK and found somewhere to take thier rigs. No doubt, The forest service is helping them.

80k Plus acres. Astounding!

I've read that fires are a natural and ecologically necessary occurrence. But it still seems more like a great loss than a new beginning.

Especially sorry for any of those who might have found themselves in harm's way and have lost homes, health, friends, etc.
