[pct-l] Oregon hit hard in last few years

 With all the fires in Oregon the last few years, the PCT there will soon 
look like " No Man's Land" in Europe during WW I.   At least the Lava fields 
along the trail are safe!!! 
    Even though fire is all part of the game in the wilderness, it sure is 
ugly!! The Beaving Creek Fire in the Olympic National Park in 1985 burned up a 
beautiful valley near Staircase and still looks bad 18 years later.
    Plus side will be some good feed for wildlife for a few years .
       Maybe there is something to this global warming? Last years " Quest" 
dog race up north needed to truck dogs around in a few spot for lack of snow. 
Spuce beetles are having a Hayday warm temps. in Alaska.
