Arnica at Oxbow

The Arnica Fire of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA is thought to have started via lightning strike on the 13th of September. Some news reports say that the fire burned unnoticed for about ten days before being spotted. At its peak, the Arnica Fire (in combination with road construction between Madison and Norris, WY), cut the park in half North-South.

 

Recent weather systems have knocked the fire down, leaving only the manmade blockages of roads.
