Los Angeles on Fire
Every so often a large chunk of Los Angeles catches fire.
It happens, in the same way that a mosh pit happens at a death metal concert: you know it's coming and you just hope you're not near it when it does. And if you're smart you don't go to the concert in the first place, but I'm not about to leave California.
Angeles National Park is currently ablaze, and luckily it's not a place that's heavily inhabited. But there's a lot to burn there, and apparently the smoke is drifting at least as far north as Reno, NV, about 7 hours away. Thank you Flickr find. God, these are so gorgeous.
