I drove down the dirt roads today that border the areas that
burned on April 19 and took new pictures. The Pitch Pines have a
lot of new growth on them. Some of the pictures I took are quite
dramatic. There's new growth on limbs and trunks. It's pretty
amazing. That was the closest that a fire ever got to here, so
re-visiting the site is easy. It's probably only 5 miles away.
Anyway, check out the slideshow. I uploaded it to my Youtube
account, and it should be viewable by now. Here's the link:

Two days ago I put up my slideshow of the pictures I took
several days after the fire. Then I posted to the group that I
had put it up. I'm thinking no one received that message and the
other ones I wrote about it. I know Jenny had originally
responded, and I responded back to her as well. Maybe all
messages aren't getting through. In one of my posts I described
the area that burned, and who owns the land.
Anyway, here's the Youtube link again:

viewed in high quality, which is recommended.
And to repeat what I already said in one of my older posts on
this, this was about 2 to 3 miles from here. I guess about 3.
By the way, in that news report seen in the last Youtube link
that I posted, that was the first time I ever heard the
Pinelands National Reserve mentioned on a news report. I'm glad
they did. He even said it correctly (reserve, as opposed to
By the way, someone (who seemed to be new to the group) posted
something about the Albany Pine Bush a couple days ago, and no
one responded to her except myself. I'm thinking that post also
never got through to anyone (or maybe I only dreamed it). It's
kind of weird. Once in a while some posts get through to me, and
it seems no one else received them, because no one responds at
all, even though they seem to be of interest.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the slide show. I will keep the group
informed about the re-growth of the forest. I always enjoy
regrowth of forests after fire. It's fun to see.
