Mount Major Forest Fire Damage

I had the opportunity recently to hike through an area that had been through a forest fire. This was my first time experiencing this and it was quite impressive and humbling at the same time.

The fire was on Mount Major, a pouplar destination here in the lakes region of New Hampshire. The fire burned for two days around April 26th and consumed 30 to 40 acres. No cause has been identified at this time.

My hike was on May 10th and the following picture was taken on the Boulder Loop Trail.

Thanks for sharing the pic. It looks like some of the young growth in the area was somewhat spared.

There are a fair number of deciduous trees in that area, I suspect there was a lot of dried leaves and such from the trees fueling it.


P.S. For those who're interested there is also a discussion thread regarding fires.
