Wild Fire

In Oklahoma, along I 35, there were several large areas of burnt fields, and areas where the wild fires jumped over the interstate to the other side. Parts of the park at Turner Falls were burnt also. This fire happened just a few days before we got there.

In Kansas, we drove up 77, and saw many, many large burnt areas. But they were set to burn off the dead grass. Thousands of acres burnt. In Manhattan, Paul went up to a golf course in the hills above town and the fire burnt right around the golf course, there was a cement golf path and that was the dividing line. We often could smell the smoke and the sky was gray that day. Julie has mentioned at times that it was smokey outside on nice days. Got to wonder why this is OK.
