Here is my GoPro video looking Northwest across Oak Creek Canyon at the Slide Wildfire on May 21, 2014. I moved the GoPro (20sec mark) as I was VERY concerned the fire was spreading across 89A to the Eastside of Oak Creek Canyon which was my escape route. Luckily it did not. You can see the severity of the wind that is fueling this wildfire from not only the smoke but the trees blowing as well.

The entire time I was photographing, I could hear chainsaws, helicopters, airplanes and fire personnel driving up and down 89A. A HUGE THANK YOU to all the firefighters and support involved. You guys risk your lives to protect us, our land and our property. So much respect for you all.
