Thielsen Creek – at risk

I recently hiked the PCT around Mt Thielsen, and one of the more spectacular areas was around the junction of PCT and Mt Thielsen trail.

Sadly, unfortunately for this generation, the Thielsen fire burns uncontained.

Update from Sunday:

Thielsen. OR-UPF-000441. ICT3. 2 mi SE of Diamond Lake, OR. Start 9/8. Point Zone Protection, Full Suppression. Cause: Unknown. 5,110 ac (+0). 0% Contained. Timber. Active fire behavior. Evacuations and evacuation notices. Structures threatened. Road, trail and area closures. T2 IMT ordered.”

The beauty and grace in the balance today is beyond my prose, yet we continue to ignore the warnings of human impacts to our climate … sigh.
