      The Lava Fire

      The Lava Fire has been burning in Northern California for a week or so, very rugged and rocky country to the north of Mount Shasta.  It has burnt about 25,000 acres and thankfully is now about 75% contained.

      If interested look here   https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7581/

       

      The following picture came to me by email and is just to good to not pass on to the train crowd, I wish I knew the name of the photographer but I don't.  I sure give him/her full credit for a great picture.

      This is whats left of the last wooden trestle on Union Pacific's (former Southern Paciific's) main line north of Weed California.

      Bummer. Always sad to lose a piece of history like that trestle.

      Thanks for sharing.  These fires bring the anxiety levels to the top of the chart for me.  When we traveled West in the Summer of 2017, they were the major topic of conversation.  The current fire, the old fire of 20 years ago, the last fire, the conditions for the next fire.  I know it is no different than floods and just something that you learn to live with.  Have always felt floods were bad, but droughts were worse.  Wish you guys the best, that live with this stuff.
