Good Creek Fire The fire was started by a lighting strike the day before. The Okanagan Mountain Park fire was in the same general area so there wasn't much fuel left for this fire to burn.

I setup my tripod in the door of the car while I waited in the lineup to get to our camp site (close to the Mount Enas fire). This is a photo every 10 seconds. I needed to do quite a bit of stabilization in post because the tripod wasn't super stable.

Mount Enas Fire As we got closer to the Mount Enas Fire, we got a better view of the extent of it.

10 second gap between photos. Some stabilization between frame 10 and 150 when we weren't moving.

Post Fire Campsite This is what we found when we were let in two days after the fire. We left our tent standing and it had been blown down (pegs pulled out of the ground). The fly was underneath, still strapped to some of the poles. Everything smelt of smoke and there was a thin layer of ash on things. It took us about an hour to pack up our remaining possessions.

Red-Naped Sapsucker Helen noticed this bird while I was taking photos of the Osprey. You can see how the tree has been damaged so that the Sapsucker can get a meal.

Yellow Salsify Field I remember these giant sized dandelion's when I was a kid. They don't quite blow like dandelion's, but they are huge.

Curious Osprey Family This is an artificial nest tree but a very successful family - there were three almost full sized chicks in the nest.

Spotted Knapweed On Trail I didn't see Knapweed anywhere else - I wonder if this is a human transported plant.
