No fly day in Chelan July 9

The fire is growing as the day heats up.
We had wicked thunderstorms last night...camping at the tree farm we eventually smelled smoke but couldn't find any fire nearby to need to evacuate our tent, but the next day we discovered that the Butte had been hit with multiple strikes and was on fire.  A TFR while the fire crews fought the fire, plus the risk of additional daytime thunderstorms meant the day was cancelled so it was time to visit friends in Mansfield and go swimming at Summer Falls.  Another hot day with temps in the 100's!


Swimming and hiking at Summer Falls.
Update: we've been told the TFR is lifted so it's back to flying the Butte tomorrow!
