Bennett's Ski School, worked there this past summer



Off of the Amite River, right around the rope swing/Diversion area...also last summer


Fishing the basin with my #1 baw last April on the most flooded, muddiest day of the year. Didn't have a bite all day and damn near got trapped about 8 miles from the closest person but we made it out alright.


Some flooded cypress around the St. James Boat Club area. Had a semester long project out there last Spring planting baldcypress trees


Another one, same concept:


And finally, my dendrology teacher from a couple years ago. Let's just say she made me want to go to class

Terrible, if it doesn't pick up we are going to have a bad fire season.

There isn't any snow below 6000'. We might have been camping on 40" of snow pack.

Holy crap.

It's as bad a year as I can remember. Hoping for a couple of late dumps to help the summer runoff.

Here is a pic from 5000' looking at Hood ten days ago.


Flowers are blooming. People are wearing shorts. Not good.

re: Outdoor Board Great Outdoor Scenery
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity”
? John Muir




“As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can".”
? John Muir




“I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news”
? John Muir




“Most people are on the world, not in it — have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them — undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate.”
? John Muir,




“The mountains are fountains of men as well as of rivers, of glaciers, of fertile soil. The great poets, philosophers, prophets, able men whose thoughts and deeds have moved the world, have come down from the mountains – mountain dwellers who have grown strong there with the forest trees in Nature’s workshops.” John Muir

Nothing special but wanted to contribute. Can't wait for days like this. Wind has been brutal.

ETA: First attempt came in upside down but I thought it looked cool so I left it.

re: Outdoor Board Great Outdoor Scenery
These two photos are from the Jerusalem Valley fire in Lake County, CA. I'm not sure that it qualifies as "Great" outdoors scenery but it is very interesting to me how these things play out.

The first photo show the pyro-cumulus cloud that often forms from large wildfires, volcanics, etc. The tip of the cloud is at roughly 25-30,000 ft given what I know about topography in the area.





In this second pic you can see the tip beginning to collapse. I couldn't stick around to watch it much longer so I wasn't able to capture the full collapse. What typically happens is when the collapse does happen there are high winds at ground level as a result and it can push the spread of the fire even further.



Like I said...not great but it's part of living in the land of fruits and nuts. Between the Jerusalem Fire and the neighboring Rocky fire over 86,000 acres have been burned as of today.
