I was just looking back thru photos I'd taken last year and came across my Piedmont NWR photos.
We have been so fortunate to have been able to meet all the various people we have met while traveling/working in different places.
I look at these photos and I think of all the preparation that goes into just PREPARING for a prescribed burn; all the knowledge and team work it takes to make it seem like there was no effort to burning 500-2000 acres at all. How they pretty much have control of the fire, which is not an easy thing to do. And we have been fortunate that the people that do this have been so willing to share their knowledge and experience with us. They have all come to mean a great deal to both Dan and me.
So, yes we are counting the days till we can see everyone again. This year we won't be there for the burns, but whatever it is that we will be doing, I know they will all be willing to share their expertise with us.
Here are some photos of our Piedmont friends. See you in about 17 days!!!
