|Rim Fire #1 - Sierra Nevada 2013|
|Rim Fire #2 - Sierra Nevada 2013|
I've posted earlier photos of wildfires before, for example, the Angora Fire and the Mount Vision Fire.
Here are two photos taken at the "Rim of the World" overlook outside the entrance to Yosemite. Individual images aren't really able to convey the scope of this fire, however. What's different in this case is that the Rim Fire is extremely attention-getting since it's omnipresent for a long distance while driving on Highway 120, the main road from the Bay Area to Yosemite.
The air started to clear once I was inside Yosemite headed towards Tioga Pass.
