Twin Lakes and Wildfire Smoke Haze

08.08.18 - Yes, folks, there are a lot of dead trees due to drought and bark beetle infestation. There is a reason that the fires are burning hot and furious. Gah.


On the other side of the coin, I have seen many many more nuthatches, creepers, and woodpeckers pulling beetles and larvae out of trees this summer than ever before. The birds are feasting.
