Reynolds creek fire

September 28, 2015  |  Glacier  |  Comments Off on Reynolds creek fire

On the east side of the going to the sun road a fire had been going strong for nearly a month before we got there.. it had burned across the road and was contained when we arrived. There were still smoldering spots as we drove through the burn area, and it looked like an alien landscape.

Super fun approach trail to Avalanche Lake, Trail of the cedars is a boardwalk though a fairly old growth cedar forest.
