The Aftermath

Uploaded by: Doesiedoats

Saturday August 3, 2013

Williams, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Returned to the lower pond this morning for the first time since the second day after the Pacific Fire. It is a very sad view and will become even more so in the near future. Most of the trees you see, and have seen in many of my photos, will be gone. There are already 20 trees identified as needing to be cut down due to fire damage.

Well, yes, the trees that are affected here
are mostly the pine trees.

We have a pine on the edge of our back yard
and the horses pasture that was only 4 feet
tall when we moved here in 1999. Today that
tree is over 20 feet in height. It has been
fun to watch it grow. Like one of our kids.

I agree, it's still not what one would see
in a lifetime, but it sure is better than
not at all.

Thanks, Peter, for dropping by to see our
Williams fire story.

Terrible aftermath, thankfully nature will restore things but never as they were. Trees are a very sad loss as its a long process getting them back where they were up to, probably not in a lifetime, glad no horses were hurt.

Great photo, tho I hate to see this situation happened. so much of this happening this last few years, in a lot of states.
They will re-vegetate, but does take years for it to become beautiful again. A fire not too far across the mountain to the north, burned a lot about 15 years ago. Last couple years it is looking nice & green again, but I will never see it again like I remember it.

Thanks Kristina.

I don't know when they will begin removing the trees as we are all under the highest restrictions and any chain saw use is strictly prohibited. I imagine the tree removal won't start until after a fair amount of rainfall in the Fall.

Thank you Eileen and Kat.

There are a lot of folks who are going to
be saddened by this year's go round of fires.

I'm uploading shortly more shots of the rest
of the story.

That is very sad, Julia! I love the trees in your
photos and I know you do, too. I'm sure they are
like your old friends. I know Colorado's landscape
has been radically changed in spots because of
fires and in other places because of the horrible
infestation of pine beetles that will wipe out
most of our lodgepole pines. I guess we will just
have to keep our eyes open for the beauty that
remains.

About Doesiedoats

Doesiedoats

I’m a native Oregonian, born in Tillamook and reared in the greater Portland area. After working in the Bay Area in the semi-conductor industry as a Human Resources Representative, my husband and I retired in 1999, returned to Southern Oregon and settled in the Williams area. Photography interests started early on with a Kodak Box camera and later a Kodak 616 given to me by my father, a semi-professional photographer. After many years of film cameras, the advent of digital photography has expanded my interest in the hobby. My camera is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. The Pacifica Gardens property has become the preferred subject of my photography because of its natural beauty. I have captured all four seasons over the past twelve years. I’m pleased to be able to share some of those photos with my WU friends. Please visit my web site via the link below.************************************************
