Last week, we drove up the center of Colorado on the way to Denver.
It was a beautiful drive, but sadly many of the pine trees were killed by the bark beetle. In some placed whole mountains were covered in brown pine trees.
My sister said that unless there is a significant freeze for several years, Colorado will lose most of its pines.
It’s really hard to picture such devastation when you’re surrounded by pristine mountains.
But then we went boating on Lake Dillion.
Those polka dots are pyres of felled trees, infested with the bark beetle. And there are hills just like this all over the area.
Until next time.
