block fire on lower west sierra; use highway 49; must keep fire from eating vital world-food crops in valley.
Best Wishes to all in Leavenworth, WA from a former Navy river guide. I enjoyed many weekends in Icicle Creek Canyon in 1993-1994. Was devastated to recognize homes in danger on the news reports. Hope the fire stays contained to the limits of the '94 fire at worst.
Wish I was closer and in condition to assist,
