Sunrise after the Fire

Sunrise after the Fire

Yellowstone has done a lot to educate the public about the importance of fire in their ecosystem. Their visitors centers (which your purchases here support) have really done a lot for education on that subject. I used to dislike going to the Visitor's centers. Now it is a highlight of my trips there, because they do such a fantastic job of explaining what is around you. Here is a group of trees just west of Tower Junction that were killed by fire. Taken just before sunrise.
