As we hiked higher into the mountains, we were able to grasp just how far the fires had spread in Arizona. There was a patchy burn pattern over the hills and mountains, extending in all directions.
I wonder what sort of succession will emerge as a result? In a year or two I bet biodiversity will explode. Wildlife was rather sparse this summer because of the fires, but I hope to visit again next year to see how the recovery goes.
