The King Fire near Pollock Pines has grown about 5,000 acres overnight - an improvement over the explosive growth seen yesterday.  The change in wind direction yesterday afternoon and overnight has cleared much of the smoke Serene Lakes was seeing. For information on the fire go to either YubaNet - King Fire or InciWeb - King Fire. The official King Fire Facebook page is at King Fire PIO.

Denis Drew captured and shared this great photo of Serene Lakes:
Welcome to Serene Lakes Property Association (SLPOA). Serene Lakes is a special place located in the historic Donner Summit area of the Sierra Nevada,  Situated at 7,000 feet (2,134 meters) are two connected lakes - Serena and Dulzura. Lake Serena is the community water supply and swimming is not permitted.  No motorized watercraft are permitted on either lake,
The community surrounding those lakes is made up of about 800 cabins and homes. It has been described as a "time warp" in the Sierras, reflecting a simpler, quieter time. In 2013 the residents demonstrated their love and appreciation of this unique place by joining together with the Truckee Donner Land Trust to acquire 3,000 acres of land surrounding Serene Lakes, preserving it from further development.
SLPOA is a voluntary association of lot and cabin owners. It represents the interests of its members to state and local government agencies, maintains the private beach and common areas, and organizes community activities. All of that is accomplished through volunteers, the people that create the "time warp" that is Serene Lakes. If you'd like to be part of a close community that appreciates the history and natural qualities of this beautiful area please click to go to the Join SLPOA section.
