Reminder: Fire is scary. Another reminder: It can also be very beautiful when it's burning near one of the most beautiful places on this entire planet. Yosemite National Park just posted its time-lapse video that shows different perspective of the ginormous 2013 Rim Fire and reveals how it is burning up the wilderness.

Yosemite describes the video:

The first part of this video is from the Crane Flat Helibase. The fire is currently burning in wilderness and is not immediately threatening visitors or employees. The second half of the video is from Glacier Point, showing Yosemite Valley, and how little the smoke from the fire has impacted the Valley.
