Great report! Paddled along the southern edge of that burn area this year and it sure is an erie feeling but I was facinated by the combination of the stark landscape of burnt tree trunks and bare rocks contrasted by the lush green understory of the new growth.

Thanks for your trip report and pictures. It's sad to see the fire damage in one of the most beautiful parts of the BW....but interesting to see the forest beginning its regrowth.

Nice report. Read it while at lunch today, reminded me of my trip last year through the alpine burn area!

I couldn't wait for success, so I went ahead without it!
