More on the fires

OK, so this isn’t directly related to riding, but I thought it was interesting. I’ve been following the BC/Yukon/AK forest fires since we rode through the area, and, lemme tell you, it’s getting sort of crazy up there.

Here are a couple of pretty amazing images:

Hazard Mapping System Fire and Smoke Product from the NOAA Satellites and Information website: “Analysis for day 7/5/2004 last updated at 7/6/2004 8:34:25 GMT. Fires are in red. Fire size has been increased so fires are visible in this large view. Smoke, when detected by the analyst, is in gray.”
