We drove up Lester Road and walked to Campbell Lake yesterday. This is an area that burned in the Cougar Flats Fire, part of the immense Carlton Complex of wildfires started by lightning last month. This is the fire we could see from our house. Photos of it burning are here. We got home just as the next big rain storm with thunder and lightning was beginning.


  1. This is very sad, I loved hiking this area early spring. It will take years before it recovers.

    • Yes, it will take years for it to be like it was before the fires. However the new regrowth already is amazing. The wildflowers next spring should be terrific!

  2. Wow, Teri! Thanks for sharing these great images. đŸ™‚
