I took a little ride to get impressive pictures, all I saw was smoke.
It was clear in Groveland. I saw about 30 fire trucks pull out of town. Ferretti rd out of Groveland is not signed, so I rode it out to 120 where the road block is located. Near Lumsden turnoff you can see that the fire came right to road. There is fire retardant on the road and on top of a few homes.
It looks to me that the danger for Pine Mountain/Groveland has passed unless the wind changes
Looking across the canyon you see smoke for miles, so definitely moving north/east.
