El Portal Fire

Here's a photo from Leopold Lake in the Emigrant Wilderness on Saturday afternoon.  This scene reminded us so much of the Rim Fire last year.   This is never something you want to see on a backpacking trip, and it cast a bit of a pall, quite literally, on the rest of our time in the backcountry.

Hope they get this under control soon....

We'll post more photos from the trip later
