Taken 10/23/07 by my cousin, who writes: “So far the devastating California wildfires haven’t caused us any major problems here in San Clemente. The smoke and ash has been horrible, but the fires have kept their distance. I went on a hike and took a few pictures, which I’ve attached to this email. All these pictures were taken within a few miles of San Clemente and around the Irvine area. Many of the pictures were taken from the ridgeline that borders our house and Camp Pendleton, the large military base just south of here. Although the winds have stopped gusting at 50-80 miles per hour, the air and brush is very dry.”
Lots more photos here.
