and here is a link from the post by Bob Valen NCNP Public Information Ranger about wildfires.
Very interesting links. Thanks Bob and Christian for the information!
By the way, please spend some time viewing the North Cascades Institute web site. They have a number of excellent courses coming up over the next several months. It is a good way to visit this area more often, to meet some outstanding instructors and staff, and immerse yourself into this beautiful landscape.
