Cabin on the Creek, and the Chimney Tops 2 Fire

Here are pictures, with captions of the Cabin on the Creek and its environs after the Chimney Tops 2 Fire swept at it and around it and all around the area.  I am putting it on my blog since I have
found putting captions much easier on the blog than on Facebook.

Nature is powerful, beautiful but not always kind. Like the forest, you too will rebound. You have it in you.
Take care,

Henry, thanks for sharing.

If you get a chance, perhaps you could get some photos of the hemlock stumps that burned deep into the ground.

Thanks for documenting the fire's effects!

Kindest regards,
