Knowing that my dad and big brother would be in town for Clark's graduation was all the prompting Scott needed to procure a Burn Permit. It was time to eliminate the big ol' pile of cedars at the bottom of the west slope. Since I was busy going to church like a good kid Sunday morning, Dad took some photos for me.
All the cedar branches we trimmed off to make the garden fence posts went "poof" pretty quick with the help of a little lighter fluid.
Since the fire was already going, Scott couldn't resist finding some more stuff to toss in it. This dead tree had been laying here long enough for the little seedling trees to grow up around it. Scott trimmed a few away...
...then used the wench and the Ranger to pull it out and drag it to the burn pile.
Big brother, Mark, helped keep a watchful eye.
By the end of the day, the large pile had been reduced to a small pile - and the fire had taken out a little green grass along the way. Another successful day of burning complete!
