I made a quick stop in Pateros, WA two nights ago to look at and photograph some of the remains of where the fire swept through. The first thing I noticed was that the fire is not done. The area is still thick with smoke and in the two short hours I spent there my eyes became scratchy and irritated. The complete destruction of some areas was pretty incredible. There is not much more I can say as the pictures below say more than I could ever do with words.
