Frisco, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I love the pretty lake at Officer's Gulch, but it almost makes me sick to see all the dead and dying pines. Dang beetles! I don't think I'm wrong to choose the Natural Disaster category...:-(

You found such a lovely spot with the gnarled and twisted tree trunk, but the sight of the dying pines is very sad - and these beetles have been very busy - I assume over a period of several years, to do so much damage.
Truy a heartbreaker !

Thank you, Gil and Delana! I don't know if I will go back to this place.
It's worse every time I go. I wish they would start cutting them out. It is
also a real fire danger!

Wow! Interesting tree stumps here. Yes I am with you on the Natural Disaster on the dying trees.
We've had Pine Beetles in most places here in the area, for many years.
Sure is sickening. And to think when I was a teenager, and we'd gather wood for the winters, and we felt very lucky if we'd find a dead or at least partly dry tree. There was nothing but Green wood any place we'd go.
