I went to Portland Sat. around 1:30 after sailing via 84. I saw mostly green trees when I got several miles W. of Cascade Locks. Not pretty CL through Bonneville.

Hi Gang,

Below is a map I prepared using our weatherflow.com sensor data and a fire map from the Incident Management Team 2. Note that the most catastrophic fire expansion happened on Sept 5. when the fire swept over 11 miles of the Gorge in 12 hours driven by winds over 30 knots between Stevenson and Rooster Rock.

Click on link for a larger version. And on that page click on the map for an even larger version.

Thanks Mike,
The color coded lines really tell the story. The rain has been a blessing. We can all breathe easy now.
