Hey Brian! Coincidentally “slushed” up to the Dollar lakebed via the abandoned old route on a really warm Sunday the 8th–saw what must have been your downhill track–quickly melting away. Hadn’t been to the lake for years–was disappointed to find that the old photogenic, isolated “Dollar Christmas Tree” on the east shore has died. Trunk burned only partially on its lower northwest side…while no other trees in the immediate vicinity showed any evidence of fire–“Lake” or other. Rather puzzling… sorry for the poor image quality of the attached but if you zoom in you’ll immediately know which tree I’m referring to. Anyone know the cause? Thx, SteveB.
