Surrounded by forest fires...

This was the view in the evening. The first photo was taken from the cabin we were staying at; the fires were scarily close. We saw lots of tree candling; the process by which a tree is engulfed in flames and burns brightly like a candle for ~10 secs before dying down.

Wow!! So much more threatening in the dark.

Oh no. How awful! I hope the fires are quenched quickly. Stay safe, you.

Joker: yeah, it's way more ominous when you can actually see the fires through the smoke. It was amazing to watch though. There were lots of big helicopters dragging water containers around. They were actually filling up in the river where the wedding was, but unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the bride and groom with that going on in the background.

Caine: It's been a bad year for fires in BC. I'm back in Vancouver now, which doesn't have any problems, but in Whistler, Pemberton, Lilloet and the Okanagan there's still a lot of uncontained fires. *does rain dance*

Blimey. Poor BC :(

There's that whole Kerouac quote about "burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars". Okay, he was talking about people, but still.
