I hiked parts of the Red Eagle Lake Trail on the east side of Glacier NP yesterday and got a close up look at what life on the forest floor looks like a dozen years after the Red Eagle Fire. I was curious to see the scene since we will be watching a similar sequence in the Columbia River Gorge in the years to come. All of the disturbed areas are home to scrub aspen and ground level shrubs and in this case a lot of the scrub aspen were showing some serious colors that their full sized brethren aren't even close to yet. I am not one to discriminate on size when it comes to shooting colorful scenes so this is the first installment of many from these woods. C&C always welcome.
