I won't smoke bear grass, but I'll fondle it's wonderfully shaped flower anytime.
How long after the fire is out do they have to wait to replant trees?
The last I heard, they were not planning on replanting.
I guess they don't want to endanger the landslides.
Good to hear they are thinking about protecting the landslides. Landslides lives matter!
It would be very dangerous to attempt to hand re-seed much of that area. I was hiking in that area in 2006 and on a trail I had a corner of the switchback just blow out from under me and turtle me into my backpack. with the ground cover scared we are going to have to wait a couple years before even considering reopening those trails again.
I would ride this loop weekly because it is very close to home. The earth is not very well bonded together in this area.
Thanks for the info @eric n
cant find the original or a higher resolution image.
Thank you for continuing to update, since it rained it seems as though the fire issue is resolved - not so by a long shot!
I took a ride up towards Larch mountain yesterday. Every road going toward the fire was closed including the road to Larch. There was not one view of anything burned.
You could ride to Bonneville Dam/Cascade Locks - there were burnt trees still smoking next to the interstate when I came back from AJ's gig. That being said, there was a lot of green still too.
Still not sure what contained means, but according to this, as of 8hrs ago the percentage was still only 50. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5584/
Maybe they will want to have a crew sweep the area for hot spots and dig them out before calling it contained.
I don't know, but this is what they are saying this morning:
Percent of Perimeter Contained50%
Planned actions include monitoring fire activity, Hazard tree removal where safe to do so, mop-up and fire area assessments. Demobilization of resources as necessary. Prepare to work with BAER team needs. Monitor closure area.
Historical Columbia River Highway conditions:
East Historical Columbia River Highway is closed 2 miles East of Corbett Mileposts 9 through 22 from Larch Mountain to Ainsworth due to wildfire.
Percent contained has been minimal due to difficult terrain and access to fire line. No fire growth has occurred. Significant demobilization of rehab-related resources has been actively occurring while security resources have been increasing.
Basic version of 100% "contained"
Arbitrary line of containment linking accessible and workable ground, if the fire didn't burn 50% of that and went out it's only 50% "contained"
Here are the terms I understand: "out," and "not out."
The 15-year-old Vancouver teen accused of starting the Eagle Creek Fire will be charged as a juvenile in Hood River Count
Justice is good. Deterrence is hard to find.
One lady who lost everything in the fire says he should not go to jail,,that he should plant trees instead!
I agree, I'd put him to work planting trees for the next 10 years or so.
