I was able to join a tour, with the Forest Service, county officials and assorted ologists, of last summers Pole Creek Fire. It burned nearly 40-square miles of the Deschutes NF, private land and Three Sisters Wilderness Area northwest of Bend.
Took the ole camera along with me, here’s some shots:
I mentioned our wood fireplace in a previous post, but we only used it once or twice in the last month due to a lack of firewood. I am delighted to now say that that will no longer be a problem:
We now have enough wood to heat us through the chilly evenings (since spring has refused to visit Bend yet), as well as a goodly supply for a summer of camping trips.
