Looking southwest across the burn area you can see patches of green besides the burned trees and shrubs. I am always amazed how quickly life can return after a wildfire. There are some plants and trees that have even adapted to fire and need regular burns to propagate and thrive. A dramatic fire often yields a dramatic regrowth a few months later.
