    14 wildfires in Montana? Holy Cow.

    I rode my motorcycle through Yellowstone in the summer of '88, during the great fire there. Unbelievable.
    I hope they're getting them under control.

    That's a striking photograph, by the way.

    Hope you are doing well, my friend.

    Montana has alot of wildland so we always have fires this time of year,,, but not to this extent,,,The High temps and no moisture and a few lightening strikes has alot to do with it!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Here are some of the Names of the Fires! Yep they have Names! lolol

    Joko Lake
    Chippy Creek
    Tin Cup

    It is scarey lookin! But thank God we have some very Talented Firefighters around to Keep us all as safe as possible!

    As of the news cast last night they reported 19 fires all togeather now!,,only one of them is completely contained! Meaning that There is a Trench or a ditch dug all the way around the burning area,,,,,These fires have burned Thousands of acres,,,,,

    Mother nature has a way of Replinishing these Burned areas fairly fast after a fire,,,,,

    We also get what they call Morel Mushrooms that are edible and highly sot after from the Burned areas,,,almost like Huckleberries,,,,Meaning they can sell for alot of money,,,per gallon!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,S

    I guess something good does come out of something bad after all.
