A few silver linings in these clouds. Here's the latest from Chris:
"Reports I received this morning indicate that although the fire is still pretty fierce in places, Nuk Tessli, unlike most of the other structures in the area, is still very safe. It is protected both by alpine ridges and the wind direction. Between the 28th of July and 30th, the conflagration has not spread a huge amount, and some areas are now under control. When the wind is wrong, the smoke makes it too uncomfortable to be at Nuk Tessli - but a rain could change all that. The fire will have to spread a lot further before any of its destruction will be visible from the hiking area, so I am hoping to be able to continue business as usual as soon as the fire is under control."
