Rainbow Gathering Forest Fire 2008 Mandatory Evacuation

We entered the Rainbow Gathering on July 7th.. most of the family had left by this time and those who hadn't were packing up, except for the clean up crew.  At the final turn into the gathering we were informed that the event was under a MANDATORY EVACUATION due to a raging forest fire ... that no one could see.
