On further thought–you’re right, “lush” was probably a bit… generous. Thank you for posting these additional images. I recall it from some decades back being like your first image–those horrible, expansive manzanita fields and some really nice old timber stands around the South Fork/East Fork drainages (well below Pi Pk, above Snow Pk). Your other pics have confirmed my suspicions: that it’s now pretty much a scorched-earth wasteland. Keep on adventuring Brian & Milo!
