So on the way to Whistler with all our biking gear for a fun weekend of riding in the Chilcotin's we hear on MtnFM that Blackcomb is a burning.
As we pass the Callaghan we see lightning strike down on the the side of a mountain. We later heard a rumour that there was a fire there also.
When we get to Whistler we poke our noses out on out deck which is just on the opposite side of the highway from the main village and we get a primo view of the Blackcomb fire.
It's a little smokey this morning, but for now it seems to be staying up on the hill.
The helicopters have just started up again now so I guess they are getting ready to fight the fire again.
Here are a few pics from last night and this morning.
