Fire on the Mountain

Your on the spot reporter Christopher C. in Hawaii checking in with the latest update on the Polipoli forest reserve fire.

The one good thing about this fire is that I have discovered the digital zoom on my camera is actually quite good with only a minor loss of clarity.

This is Haleakala at noon moving from NE to SW.

Since we have only had one significant winter rain I would imagine the forest is relatively dry. This may prove an opportunity down the road to replant native trees. This forest was planted I am guessing between a 1920 to 1940 time frame.
