We had a few scary days thanks to the canyon fire 2. It’s burned over 8,000 acres, which includes homes and my favorite hiking areas. 😦
It started off a very calm day, and then the wind came blowing in with a vengeance.
I took these photos in my way to hike at Peters Canyon. My aunt and I decided not to hike in the crazy wind. We went to Costco.
The view as we left Costco was shocking. Something was burning…but what?
There was a lot of traffic reaching Jacob’s school up the 55 because the 91 was closed. The fire started at the 91 and 241 and then moved east.
I was starting to get nervous about our house. Jacob’s parent-teacher conference was canceled, and then the school was evacuated.
Cars and trucks were exiting the 91 in the wrong direction up the on-ramp.
traffic was bad.
it looked pretty scary at our house.

So here are some of my favorite pictures at Santiago Oaks (my happy place), Irvine Park, and Peters Canyon:
And some pictures of how it looks now from the parks’ Facebook feeds:
And my drive to BSF today:
