Bridge to Nowhere Photos
The "Curve" Fire
September 1, 2002

The following photos were taken on a hike I did to the "Bridge to Nowhere". While showing some people the inside of the old tunnel behind the bridge, a brush fire broke out in the main San Gabriel (or Azusa) Canyon. This fire became known as the "Curve" fire and burned for 3 - 4 days, destroying over 70 cabins up in the canyon. Myself and a few other hikers were the last ones out of the East Fork Canyon and it made for a very interesting hike down out of the canyon with the fire looming behind us.
