I took a few pictures that I'll try to get uploaded tonight. Hard to fully comprehend how big the burn area is but I went by an old camping spot I use to spend time at 20+ years ago (north of Cheesman by a few miles) that we nicknamed the "hidden spot". It is 10+ miles as the crow flies from where we were placing rock. Sadly the area is almost entirely burnt. This type of mitigation work will be needed for years and years to come.
So True Jeff. Since hundreds of thousands of acres is kind of hard to put into perspective, converted to square miles it is over 230 square miles that burned.
