The hike into Morrell Falls a year after the Rice Ridge fire swept through the area shows a variety of forbs and grass regrowth depending on the fire severity

SEELEY LAKE - Pathfinder owners Nathan and Andi Bourne revisited photo points they took along the Morrell Falls trail again this fall to help visually capture the change one year post fire. Photos were taken Oct. 19, 2017 and again Sept. 9, 2018. The amount of regrowth depended on the fire severity in the photo point.

The area behind the vault toilet as seen from the parking lot Oct. 19, 2017 and again Sept. 7, 2018. Sawyers fell many of the trees to mitigate the hazard. The clumps of beargrass are thriving.
