Sunday Trees – 397 – Wildfire Damage

Here is my entry to Becca’s Sunday Trees – 397 Tree challenge.  Two years ago, the Columbia Gorge had a huge wildfire that burned for months.  The freeway was closed down for most of that time.  And parts of the Old Columbia Gorge Highway was shut down for nearly a year.


I took these photos while Chris was driving down I-84 at 70 mph.  I thought they turned out real well.

These trees were burned on the bottom two thirds.

Here is an up close shot on a couple of trees that were near Horsetail Falls.

All photos were taken with my new Sony A7III Mirrorless Full Frame (ILCE-7M3 v2.10).  Sony E-mount 18-200mm lens.

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. I haven’t been out to the forests that were burned this past summer but I have seen trees in similar condition after smaller fires most summers. It is amazing how quickly nature does start to repair the damage but there are some varieties of native trees which won’t come back after the big fires, like the leatherwood trees. Apiarists are rather concerned about that.
