Time lapse imagery from Yosemite's "Rim Fire" shows just how intense it really is.

While perusing the web, I came across this amazing time lapse of the Rim Fire which has continued in Yosemite National Park. It was actually shared on the parks Facebook Page and has been shared over 5000 times. Here is what the post said,

"Time-lapse photography shows various perspectives of the 2013 Rim Fire, as viewed from Yosemite National Park. 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."

The fire has burned nearly 200,000 acres of land and it is now 32% contained, up from 7% contained on Monday.

Finally, if you're interested helping to restore trails, facilities and wildlife habitat destroyed by fire, you can make a gift today to Yosemite Conservancy for the Yosemite Fire Restoration Fund at
