Absolutely stunning views of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn tonight. Can't beat those dark west Texas skies for stargazing.

Good thing DW Sooz doesn't read the forum much. I'd never get her to that campground...

(unless you were there, Robert. Sooz says Yolanda is one of the nicest people she's met anywhere on the planet).

We met a retired Ranger manning the Ranger museum in Yellowstone who had done a lot of firefighting. He joked that he and his fellow firefighter many times thought of shooting Smokey (once they figured out that all the fire suppression they had been doing for decades eventually led to cataclysmic fires.)

That is one of the reasons for the severity of the Fort McMurray fire. The forest was old and full of dead wood due to suppression of past fires.

I like how BC parks for a bunch of years have just let fires burn themselves out, just so long as people and settlements are not affected. Hiking in country a few years after a burn provides lots of lush growth, often filled with berries.
