My footage of the Gila fire the top of grouse mountain, 1-2 miles away

iI was backpacking in the Gila Wilderness when the fire broke out. I shot this video from the top of grouse mountain, 1-2 miles from the fire, on May 17th:

Having seen this fire up close, I am amazed to what it has grown into. When I left the rangers told us they just sent in people on horseback to evacuate the area. All the trails we hiked were actually closed while we were out there, after we hit the trail. It's now the largest fire in New Mexico state history!
