My plains ancestors, left just a little of their live's stories. The winds would carry grass fed fires as fast as a horse could run. Then, the buffalo would pass for days, there were so many.

JBee,
hope you get lots of new opportunity to wander alone in fire torn ranges where tourists don't go!

Saw in the news today a family in Tonto Natl. Forest in Arizona swept away in a flash flood. It occurred in a burn zone where you get mud slides because nothing is trapping the water or slowing it down.

A big rain will cause a flood no matter what but the lack of grasses, shrubs and trees just makes it worse.
