|Bull Run Five Weeks Later|
Saturday, August 28, 2010
Almost five weeks ago, a fire started up Bull Run Creek and devastated our lovely "back yard". We're going to have to learn to appreciate the beauty of what remains, and it's encouraging to see the greenery already pushing up at the roots of the burnt trees. In some ways parts feel like a northern forest in the middle of winter, with ash taking the place of snow. It's going to be interesting to find what remnants of the past have been revealed by the removal of all that (highly flammable) undergrowth.
