Chris & Martin's Scrapbook - 2011

These pages were initially created to transfer photos from traditional scrapbooks to the internet in order to both preserve and make the pictures and history available to family and friends. It has become more extensive than I intended. However, I see it as a way to save the details before they slip away.

Later on the 5th Chris' horse friends contacted her about keeping their horses as they were being evacuated.  So for a few days Chris' herd grew.


September 4, 2011 a brush fire broke out on Hwy 21 East of Bastrop and turned into a horrific wild fire.  We were taking our dogs for a drive and were east of Bastrop that afternoon, drove out Hwy 21 and shot some video with a helmet camera that we keep in the Murano.  Here's links to a short (2 minute) and a long version (5 minute) on YouTube.


After those videos were posted, we were contacted by the man who was on his roof with a garden hose trying to save his home.  It worked.  Here's his video (pictures above) only minutes after we went by as he evacuated the area.  Here's a link to the satellite thermal view of the Bastrop fire.
