dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from Larkspur Landing, through the haze of a grass fire on US 101

Summer is not yet here properly but a spate of grass fires have sparked a few alarms already. The one barely visible in the right side of the picture seemed to blaze up fast in the winds, but firefighters quickly went to work on extinguishing it. Further south, on another slope, other firefighters were busy fighting a vegetation fire.

I hope these fires aren’t portents of a summer of conflagrations.
