Video: 2009 Bark Hike to Gnarl Ridge Fire

Bark Field Trip to the Tilly Jane historic trail on the east side of Mt. Hood, to view the damage and recovery from the autumn 2008 Gnarl Ridge Fire. Bark May 2009 Gnarl Ridge Fire Field Trip
Despite the intensity of the fire, at that time the area was already beginning to recover, less than a year later. It was a beautiful day, there was still snow on the ground, which provides sharp contrast to the burned out areas.

As has been already reported here on Portland IMC, Bark is leading another Field Trip this coming Sunday, July 11, 2010. This is a unique opportunity to witness a forest in transformation and recovery. Birder Jeff Schwilk will join us on our hike this Sunday to help identify some of the uncommon species that have started to move in on this renewed ecosystem
