Fire Smart

Around the community of Anahim Lake, for the last few years since the big forest fires of 2009 and 2010 burning a lot of dead pine, they have been 'fire smarting' the interface of the forest around their community.  It consists of taking down the remaining dead pine and piling with the already dead trees.  They salvaged as much firewood as was useful, then wait until this time of year when there is snow on the ground to burn the piles.  This weekend was one of those burning weekends and the areas alongside Highway 20 had some spectacular fires on a cold -8 C night.  Grizzly
