More fire damage

As we continued down the Super trail, we saw the full extent of the fire damage in this area. Small brush and grasses were flourishing around the trail, but all the blackened trees showed the path of the fire. Ahead is Riley Saddle and on the left of this image is Josephine Peak. I remember in about 1980 a hike that Frank and my old buddy Mark and I took when we took a right off of the Super Trail and relaxed in a lush green forest on a floor of pine needles somewhere near Riley Saddle a little left of center in this image. It will be a long time before its a lush green pine forest again there. This image was taken with my 10mm fisheye with an exposure of 1/250 seconds at f/11, ISO 200.

Have you been to Riley Saddle recently? See the new forest growing...some trees are two feet tall! Just go past the saddle and climb up on the Walker Basin side of the ridge. Soon you will see them like grass covering the slopes.
