You may recall the wildfire in the “Ghost” last fall that almost got out of control and had the population of the Ghost Valley along Highway 40 on evacuation alert for almost a week. The wildfire is now under control and, after driving up the somewhat rough Transalta Road, we will hike through the gravel flats of the upper North Ghost Valley near Black Rock Mountain. Accompanied by wildfire expert Edward A. Johnson Ph.D., we will check out the burned and charred areas, looking for signs of new plant growth. We will learn how such fires start, how they spread and also how to best fight them. And we will better understand the benefits and also the damages that wildfires can cause.
