Just a short note to tell everyone that we made it out of the fire zone at Lee Vining this morning. We left the campground at 7:30 and had to wait about 20 minutes for the pilot car. They escorted us to the north end of Mono Lake.
It must have been a really interesting day on Friday at Mono Lodge as the fire burned right up to the back of the motel. Hand crews with shovels were still digging up hot spots as we went by this morning.
Edison brought in a large load of power poles last night and they had a very large number of trucks staging along the highway at Mono Lodge this morning. Hard to tell where they lost poles as we went by.
Other than it being a long day, 300 miles, and hot, in the nineties, we are fine. Tomorrow is another 270 mile day to Redmond, OR.
