Where the Bighorn Fire Started
A couple of hours after the lightning strike that ignited the Bighorn Fire.
Amy and I were visiting with hiker Katherine at her house which has a marvelous and close view of the western side of the Catalinas. I asked if she was evacuated during the fire but surprisingly no. From her living room, she saw the initial glow following the lightning strike that caused the fire. There, above the lone saguaro, in the circular brown area with some spotty green bushes, is the origination of the fire that burned around 120,000 acres. OK, looks like we won't be caught in a flash flood if we enter Tanque Verde Canyon tomorrow for a visit to the falls so will do that and leading a group on a hike, Sunday.
