There would be a lot more recovery in the river bottom, if not for the drought.  Still, some of the willows are showing hints of green.

Almost all of the dead trees have been cleared out of the lower pasture, which took the brunt of the flames.  That’ll cut down on the fuel for future, inevitable, fires.

Spring is nearly here.  It must be — it’s nearly 90 degrees out!
