The eastern part of Arizona, with tinder-dry forests and beautiful dry meadows, is called "the high country"- It's a getaway for the people of the Phoenix area in the summer, when temps reach 100 and beyond. Some of the most sought-after places for cabins in the woods, the town of Greer, Alpine, Nutrioso and others are on evacuation watch from the 3rd biggest fire in AZ history. The Wallow fire - no idea why the name, but that's what they call it.
We've had very little rain, and plenty of high wind and dry lightning storms. 144,000 acres is burning. (UPDATE: Over 200,000 acres)
Pray for rain.
