Forest Litter

There is belief by some that forest fires clean up forest litter.

I have been in the woods a lot - and my experience indicates the opposite.

Did some hikes during vacation last week - and here are some pics.

These fires evidently forgot to pick up (their litter) after themselves.

Note in the distance of the one photo a green area that was logged. I will not say whether I am for or against logging - but I find that the loggers do a far better job cleaning up after themselves than all the fires I have seen.

If we want cleaned up (`manicured') forests - we need to do it - not fires.

The pic with the white rocks and near white trees are in an area that was burned in 1996. Notice the elk. I guess they would have been harder to see without the burn. And perhaps the fire opened up some more feed. But it does make it more difficult for them to hide.
