Last month(June 2015) on our way to the coast we were traveling Highway 1, through the Fraser Valley. Much prettier than the Coquihalla. We saw smoke for miles before we came across the actual fire. The helicopters were dropping water gotten from a river close by. I watched for a while thinking that there efforts were noble but such a small amount of water against such a massive fire. I thought it would evaporate before it hit the ground. Such beauty at the expense of such beauty.
