I’ve never seen anything like it.

We first saw the smoke about 20km up the road, but it was 20 min before we reached the source

a whole valley up in flame

the amazing thing was the difference in flame from when we arrived and 15 min later when we left

it was roaring through the valley.

It was up in an isolated stretch of the hills, no threat to anyone, didn’t even make the local papers

but it was a chilling reminder of the power nature and how ferocious fire can be
