I have had the opportunity to take some prescribed fire photos recently. A week ago, on September 22nd I happened on a prescribed fire along U.S. 97 south of Blewett Pass at the junction with Old Blewett Highway. The fire personnel there were gracious in allowing me to walk along the highway taking some photos. Yesterday I had a much better opportunity on the Chelan Ranger District with a burn on Grouse Mountain in the Twenty-five Mile Creek drainage. This time, I had an official invite, thanks to Chelan-Entiat District F.M.O. Kyle Cannon, and Ranger Kari Grover-Weir. I also had the clothes, and the right boots. I will have much more to say about this later in an article, but let me say this: Prescribed fire is an art form. Burn bosses have to tread the line between a fire that does not burn up what it should, and one that gets too rambunctious! It sure is great to see all of that old dried up stuff that has been laying around for years go away, though! It's going to burn sometime, might as well be when a burn boss is in control!.
