There is a major fire burning in the Santa Rita Mountains 35 miles south of Tucson in the Coronado National Forest that is threatening Madera Canyon. This fire started as a lightening strike on July 7th or 8th and had grown to 20,000 acres since then. It's about 40% contained as of today.
For those of you who have hiked in the Santa Ritas and Mt Wrightson....these areas are all toasted. As far as I know, Madera Canyon has been spared so far but the fire is very close to the cabins, lodges and summer home there.
Here's a link to the fire and maps.
I was just in Madera Canyon in June and it became a "special place" for me. I'm have reservations again for September so we'll see how things have changed.
