"F" is for forest~ABC Wednesday~082411
Arizona's forests are much thicker than ours here in Southern California. I'm only 35 minutes from the pine forest near Idyllwild, CA, but our forests don't have as much undergrowth. I'd like to say we don't have fires, but we do. This area of the forest near Forest Lakes, AZ, was hit by the Rodeo-Chediski fire of 2002. Yes, it is growing back (slowly), as you can see. It's always sad to see burned forests, especially man-made ones (like that fire). But, the forest eventually does come back and life does return. ABC Wednesday for August 24, 2011. Wish me luck...it's the first day of school and it will be 117 degrees here in the desert today! To see ABC Wednesday, please go to: http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/
