Nice shot, story and lesson. I remember hunting throught a burn area once. We came out black as coal. Thankfully these areas re-grow pretty quick. (not by human standards)


Thanks Rich. This particular area can dealt with because it is fairly accessible and be managed and perhaps come back in 100 years or so. But many thousands of acres are in very inaccessible locations and with the dead but still standing "doghair" pine and aspen trees. Unless these trees are removed or dealt with in some way, they fall and become fuel for other fires. Stands of larger trees can be salvage logged profitably but these skinny trees aren't worth the effort. I don't know what the Forest Service has planned.
