Forest Fires on Throwback Thursday

Growing up in the 70's/80's, Smokey the Bear was a popular icon.  I love his message and had made it my mission to prevent forest fires. Unfortunately it wasn't until I moved west did I find out what true Forest Fire risk was.  I can only remember one serious fire in Wisconsin the entire time I lived there but here in California every summer you can be guaranteed at least a few.  And since there is so much more open dry land it spreads faster and further.

Fire is on my mind because when I was driving toward Lancaster to work I say the San Bernardino National park for the first time.  We didn't have a chance to stop because I had to be at my destination at a specific time but I told my husband that I wanted to make sure we come back later this year to take pictures.  But the next day it was broadcasted that the park was on fire and still is today.  Very sad.
