A big bush fire caught blaze this weekend so I went out to see it Monday morning. As I took off from Usery Pass area I could see the mountains on fire, not inferno but visible orang and smoke. The Moring was clear up high but down below fountain hills and my trails were dropping into a light haze of smoke. Soon I was in it, and it smelled and tasted like a camp fire, and left that familiar taste of smoke BBQ meat. I wasnt the only one that morning smoking it up so maybe my lungs will be just fine. As I exited the cloud on the climb up to the car I had the smoke taste in my mouth for a good 20 minutes which was freaky but cool.
