While our son and grandson are here visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday we take family excursions.
The terrible wild fires of this past summer have left the earth scarred and bare.
We decided to take a ride to see what some of the areas now looked like.
Of course we picked the day that had a gully-washer of a rain storm.
We desperately need rain but the bare earth of the fire scorched area has turned into potential land slides.
The area we were visiting was called the Butte Fire, Mokulomi Hill, CA.
Beautiful trees are just shadows of their former selves.
I have to say that there is a beauty in the ashes.
It's nice to know that someday this will return to trees and beauty once again.
