All of these pictures of course show this trail passing through the burn of 2003
Not sure how this will view, but this is a map of the Aspen Fire.
At the top you can see the intersection of the trails just outside the red outline.
The pictures of the trail are from inside the burned area.
I really did not think the Aspen I saw there , so tall, so dead, were affected by the fire. But this map shows the truth.
A very sad day....
The plan is to allow the forest to recover naturally. It is amazing how much it is doing just that.
I did take a LOT of pictures, so
will close for now.
