I'm going too far by saying you
might be interested in forest
fire ecology. Ghost forests are
facinating places! It's always
interesting how fire can engulf
some trees, and leave others alone.
Nature always has a way of
carrying on its seed. Nice photo!!

In addition to wanting to be a cop or a truck (18-wheeler) driver, one of my dream jobs when I was a kid was to be a forest ranger. I was such a tree nerd as a child that I kept an inventory of the trees on the acre I grew up on, complete with sprecies and trunk circumfrance. Yeah, I'm a geek.

And, yes, wildlands fire is very intersting to me. I wish we had more frequent, "cool-grade" wild fires than these infrequent, high-fuel-load fires (like Hayman) that destroy every thing in their path.

Absolutely right! IMHO, you don't have
to be a forest ranger to have a deep
concern and lasting interest for our forests and deserts and rangelands.

Environmental factors, including fire,
are a big part of forest ecology.
When you get a chance, please look at
