I am always excited to see a new summer rolling in. The winters are long so it seems like we earn the warmth up in North Idaho. Forest fires are a big downside, they are getting worst by the year.
In 1988 there were huge forest fires in Yellowstone National Park. My Dad and I drove through the park on our way to an epic backpacking trek just south of Yellowstone. I thought I would never see forest fires like that again, I wish that were true.
