Michael Grady was hiking in the Valles Caldera National Preserve northwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico when the Las Conchas fire started nearby. He took some pictures, and was kind enough to send them to Wildfire Today.

When he saw how close the fire was, he started hiking out, and he and some other hikers were picked up by a Preserve shuttle van which took them to safety.

We have been very busy recently, and when time permits, will post more of Michael’s photos.

Thanks Michael!
