I passed the weekend visiting my parents in Sedona. I arrived Thursday afternoon, two days after the a fire started in Oak Creek Canyon (just five miles north of Sedona). Slide Rock State Park, within Oak Creek Canyon, has been closed since the fire started and has given the fire, the “Slide fire,” its name.
It is a big fire, currently over 30 square miles, and more than 1,000 firefighters are working on it. The fire is 35% contained and today they hope to build a line to the south of the fire. This, along with prevailing winds, should together help assure Sedona won’t be impacted.
My parents are doing great. Phone calls help me know that, but visits really give me comfort.
That’s that. Take care.
