In case you missed it! A recording of Ken’s session, plus an article to explore further impacts of the fire from Sierra.
On October 21, 2020, the East Troublesome Fire roared through Grand County creating a unique firestorm unlike any that have been seen before. Nearly everyone agreed a forest fire had been waiting to happen for years but no one anticipated the firestorm that came about. Now we are left to watch nature take its course to see what results over time. This presentation looked at some of the immediate effects of the fire, what recovery can be seen to date, and what are some of the lingering impacts. The story was told from the perspective of imagery gained from drone overflights and satellite imagery interpretation. A view of how this perspective shapes our interpretations was presented.
(Presented by Ken Fucik, longtime friend of Shadowcliff and Grand Lake local.)
And a special bonus sent by Shadowcliff friend Leslie Friesen, this link to the July 14th article on the subject of the East Troublesome Fire in Sierra – The Magazine of the Sierra Club titled Public Lands Transformed: Inside Parks’ Wildfire Recovery.
