Like everyone at the end of the summer, we headed to Black Butte for our last hoorah. On the way over we noticed a plume of smoke, but didn't worry, as it appeared to be so far away. We turned on channel 3 to check the phase on the ranch and it was phase 1, which quickly turned to phase 2. I took a lot of pictures on a daily basis, all moving nearer and nearer the ranch, but everyone still going about their business enjoying their last days of summer. Then yesterday around 2:30p we were evacuated. Wish I could share more than one photo... so finding just one is hard. Enjoy and stay safe.
