when I rode home from Jackson yesterday afternoon I saw a lot of smoke in the Valley. I figured it was everyone having a wood fire. however that is not at all the case. apparently there is a fire up in Hales Location behing Cathedral Ledge. from just looking up there it would seem to be in the vicinity of the Red Ridge Trail. I could see the clouds of smoke were really billowing up as I rode my bike back from town this afternoon. pretty disconcerting. the woods are tinderbox dry and it is ossible that the whole thing could go if we had some heavy winds.
