A Burning Season

Fire in the Mountains - Chihuahua-9038Fire in the Mountains - Chihuahua-9040

Though it is a heartbreaking reversal in a season of growth, it comes with the weather, the warmth and the dispersion of energy, whether a natural recycling process or the result of man’s carelessness. The spark that lights our nights and powers our engines also eats the landscape we admire…As stewards of our environs, we do what we can to stem the floods of flame that flow from forest fires…noble work for many who will soon be busy again across the continent. From our vantage point above this fire in the Sierra Madre Occidentals in a remote region of Chihuahua, Mexico, we cannot assume a cause, but we hope that rains will follow to dowse the flames so that the growing may resume.
