Slow to Heal
Passage Creek, Montana
This area burned 14 years ago in 2006. I have not been in the area since the fire and was amazed at how little recovery there was compared to other burned areas of the same vintage that I’ve seen. It must have been one hot fire. There was very little greenery in the area excepting some small brush and wildflowers. This stark environment did yield a good trail to hike in the time of coronavirus as it is not the kind of scenic location most folks would have high on their lists to visit.
