My family and I went to go visit the Willamette National Forest earlier this afternoon to check out the fire damage from there because we had a couple of major wildfires that burned a bunch of acres back in 2017 and 2018 due to lightning strikes and/or people who ignite fires. Here are a few pictures of various trees that got charred after the 2017 wildfires:
We got really lucky back then because the fire was heading towards our town after burning about 50,000 acres from the Horse Creek Complex and Jones fires but the firefighters and heavy rains have managed to put out the fiery blaze of destruction for good.
Oh, and while we were heading back home I activated my camera and snapped a picture of a squirrel at the edge of the road minding its own business:
Yep, that is one cute squirrel with a nice fluffy tail. 🙂
