The Santa Cruz Mtns Fire

http://cbs5.com/video/?id=34464@kpix.dayport.com

There aren't too many roads up in the area of the fire, otherwise I'd be up there riding. However, even worse, there are no sources of water for fire hoses. Hopefully this fire will be snuffed out before too much damage and people are harmed.

This link seems to have the most up to date information:

I figured probably one of the best ways to get the word out was to put a blog post up and have it show up on your site.

On a side note, it would be an interesting by-product of the fire to have folks realize that the roads up there need to be paved for better fire fighting access. That would open up some pretty sweet riding...however, riding up on the dirt roads there is still fun too.
