Yosemite Meadow Fire

Sep 30th 2014 — Yosemite — 7:15 pm

Pictures of what was known as “The Meadow Fire”, in Yosemite National Park, spreading into Little Yosemite Valley and eventually to Cloud’s Rest on September 7th, 2014. A persistent drought combined with windy conditions meant the fire spread quickly.

These were taken from an Iphone in the early afternoon as the fire progressed.

Eventually the 80 or so hikers stranded on Half Dome were evacuated by helicopter with combined efforts of several local rescue agencies.
