Mid September we took a few days to visit Yosemite. 2 days we “camped” at Housekeeping camp and 2 days we stayed at the Ahwahnee Hotel with Steve’s mum and Mike. Had an awesome time, took a billion photos. I’m slowly processing and uploading the photos to Flickr.
Burned out ridges, and denuded hills as far as the eye could see. There were rangers at the overlook where we stopped who pointed out that the area we could see was only about 1/5 of the fire area.
It was interesting to see how the area would recover, eventually. Fire is so destructive and so scary, but is so necessary for a healthy ecosystem.
