Fire Season is Upon Us

I went for a hike in the San Gabriel's a couple of days ago to see how strong my legs felt after hiking the JMT. It was incredibly hot and most of the water that I had seen in the spring and early summer had completely dried up. When I reached the top of the mountain I chose to climb, which also has a small tower and camera, I noticed for the first time that the camera was moving around a lot. I assumed it was looking for fires. I believe that same day, a fire indeed erupted. Today, smoke and ash from the fire entered the LA basin. Temperatures are supposed to be near 100 the next few days.
