Why forests need fire (Blue Ridge Outdoors)

In June, I visited Shenandoah National Park to see portions of the 10,234 acres scorched by the wildfire in April. Already, it’s hard to tell there were 60 foot flames just a couple of months ago.

I wrote about the fire, as well as controversy over prescribed burning in Linville Gorge, for Blue Ridge Outdoors in a story that also featured a rare photo shot by me (the panorama from Brown Mountain Overlook).
