It appears much of the forest along the crest between Mt. Washington and Mt.
Jefferson is burning. Comparing the latest MODIS satellite images from the
internet to section maps, it appears that the Big Lake area is involved to

the main Booth fire by several miles appears to be growing and moving east
towards Rockpile Mtn. as well. The Bear Butte fire has grown some and has
spread east. Booth seems to be growing west, north and some to the south and
has closed about half the distance between itself and the Bear fire to the

to Three Finger Jack. The PCT in sections F4 and F5 has fire near by in the
valleys to the east and west of the crest.
