: Bottom line? I couldn't take it anymore. I have heard, from reliable sources, every possible scenario ... from total devastion to mere underbrush burning. Most leaned towards the former. So, despite feeling ill, I decided to go ahead, as planned. I expected the very worst; hoped for a miracle.

: I took pics ... they're at the one-hour photo place right now. Will post a few sometime over the weekend.
Thanks so much for the good news. It would have been hard to stand at Table Rock and see only blackened, dead forest. I'm so glad it looks OK. I can't wait to see the pictures. I'm glad too that you were feeling well enough again to make the trip.
