But in the meantime, here are some pictures of the ugliness that the fire left in the field behind our backyard soon after it happened last month. How's that for an ugly view?!
There's a walking path behind the field, and as you can see below, the fire really is well-controlled, ending at the field's edge and leaving the path intact. I guess those guys know what they're doing. Thank goodness for that!
This is what it looks like back there now, about a month later. Look at all that green re-growth!
And by summer's end, it should be back to normal and looking a lot more like this.
In the end, the strength and beauty of nature prevail over the power of fire. Pretty neat!
