Last week, while it was snowing furiously outside, Rocky Mountain National Park was burning its piles of beetle-kill trees.
Please note the pile burning photographs were taken on April 17. What a difference a week makes! Park fire staff were digging through the deep snow as well as “post-holing” to burn the piles.
What a great time to burn the piles…while it is snowing!
