    Is this the tree pentagram redux?

    I like it. I’ll have to go out next spring and take a similar picture from one of the wildfire burns here. If they’re letting anyone into the burn scars, which are always a bit dangerous. Not only falling trees, but nasty hidden holes to step in where things smoldered for a couple of months burning away a bunch of large roots.

  3. @CSK: good memory! It is from the same month of last year, but I think the one you are referring to is from a different park.

    @Michael Cain: Thanks and good luck with navigating the aftermath.
