The Ferguson Fire began on July 13th just west of Yosemite National Park and close to Mariposa, California. According to the fire department it has already burned 12,525 acres and is only 5% contained. Thick smoke is covering a large area around the fire. A plane takes part in the effort to prevent the fire from reaching either Yosemite or nearby homes.

The first day of vacay proved to be filled with things NOT going according to plan.
Thankfully we took turns in our cantankerous moments, had some incredibly beautiful moments that surprised us and clear indicators from God about why He has made us a team.
In all of the things - the one experience that fed my soul today was when Mister took me on a tour of his undergraduate campus - @uofwa
- and insisted I see the library he studied in regularly while in school there.
A library y’all...
1. He knows me.
2. He loves me.
3. He knows how to win with me.
I’m still processing that beautiful place (The Suzzallo Library). It was lovely - showing off with its impressively designed, vaulted ceilings, @starbucks
inside. The cathedral styled decor. It was huge and stunning and filled with books; ones you could take off the shelf and touch. I’m happier knowing that place exists!
We have finally made it to our hotel in Spokane after a three hour detour (due to wildfires) and are grateful to be safe + still.
So eager to see why the rest of this adventure holds because this was just day o-n-e.

and I took a walk around our property near Eureka, MT to admire our luck in finding this place. I thought I had seen every corner of the property, but today I was able to look at the house from a completely different angle. A new trail around the “top pond” allowed us to walk to this spot for the first time in 14 mos. I just loved the old driftwood -like roots in the water. There was just the right amount of sun to add a sparkle. The second photo was looking from the complete other end, across the lower pond. The remains of last years #gibralterridgefire
can be seen in the mountains. Please support forest management to maintain healthy forests. Those who have shut this work down have provided the forests with fuel for wildfires. Pls support #forestmanagement #healthforests #homesweethome #montana #homesweetmontana #eurekamt #nwmt

One of the best photos I took on my #fishing
trip in #canada
. The Island was surrounded by #wildfires
, which made for a lot of great photos
2 unedited photos of the smokey air in Manitoba due to the wildfires in northwestern Ontario!
Despite the destruction the fires are causing, it makes for a beautiful sunset!
El cielo se ve increíble, pero es imposible permanecer afuera. El humo es insoportable y el olor marea; los ojos pican y la garganta duele. Imaginen estar por más de 24 hrs cerca de una fogata, así se siente tener incendios a todo tu alrededor. 🔥

More footage of one of the fires in Southern Oregon. There are over 100 fires just in the south part of the state. Yikes. #morrisonjourney #wildfires
Current fire situation on the western part of the US. 😡 We *were*going to head to Crater Lake on Tuesday but the forecast calls for smoke and bad breathing conditions. With my asthma that would be a NO! 😩. We want to boondock but the temps are just too hot for us (90+ degrees) everywhere we look. Guess we got to change our plans for the remainder of the summer. But where to?! Anyone got suggestions?? 🤔#boondocking #wildfires #asthma #rvlife #needcoolerweather #fulltimerv
Very Smokey on the water from the fires. Have you ever been this close to a wildfire? #wildfires
In 2016 the berry creek fire burned down trees not far from home. Two years later and the charred hills are covered in purple lupine! The destructive forces of wildfires is incredible but not as much as the life coming back #wildflowers #wildfires #wyoming #tetonnationalpark
One of our llamas made it all the way out to a wild fire! On these extremely smoky days we’d like to thank all of the firefighters keeping our beautiful valley safe. From Paddington Station, thank you. ❤️
Earlier this week, our crews attended a scene where a tree had fallen on one of our power lines, causing a brush fire. Our power line technicians were able to make the area safe for the fire crews to safely extinguish the fire.
Here are 5️⃣ you can do to help prevent wildfires: 🔸 Always obey campfire bans. And when campfires are allowed, never leave a campfire unattended 🔸 Never discard cigarettes or matches into vegetation (including bark mulch) 🔸 Be aware of fire activity in the area and observe all activity restrictions and campfire bans 🔸 Create fuel-free or low-combustible zones around your house (for example, never store wood piles beside a building) 🔸 Immediately report wildfires to the BC Wildfire Service or your local fire department (911)
The Ferguson Fire in Mariposa is only 7% contained. It grew overnight. Say a prayer for firefighters and for it to be contained. #wildfires #california
