Yellowstone Continued

Grand Prismatic Spring viewed from Grand Asthmatic Trail

        The wildfire that started in Pine Creek, MT on Wednesday August 29 continues until the time of this posting.  As of Saturday evening it had burned 12,000 acres and was 30% contained.  The two photos below show the burning hillside on Thursday morning.

   Our stay at the Centennial Inn was cut short by a night as we took off for a place less at risk after the wind shifted and the heat from the fire could be felt from a couple of miles away.
