Suddenly our Rancho site, just above the San Pasqual Valley has blue sky. It's hot and breezy. It still smells like smoke and cinders. Now, like Sunday morning, we can see the foothills and mountains, and the thunderheads of billowing volcanic smoke.
This is the view from our porch looking north and east. The high smoke column on the left is from the Paradise/Valley Center Fire, then there is a clear section in the center of the image. On the right is the Cedars Fire. The two fires are forecast to meet around Palomar/Lake Henshaw (the 'clear section' between the two smoke columns.) Taken about 12:45 p.m.
