Pale beech leaves adorn moist chocolate soil, rich with salamanders and club mosses once trampled underfoot by dinosaurs. Feather-leaved hemlocks cleave the air between land and sky, the pillars of this ancient cathedral. Elven-eared trilliums in rich red purple sing to the lowest maidenhair ferns, leaves like wings, stems so thin and dark they disappear. […]

Started this post about a month ago. I’m just now catching up. Three weeks after spine surgery, and I am out with my friends and my camera. For California we are having a wet winter/spring.

WILDFIRES were sparked across Britain as the country sizzled with many parts enjoying the warmest Easter Sunday on record. Fires have been raging on the North York Moors, the Peak District and Northern Ireland. A fire raged above the village of Marsden in northwest England Firefighters from Cleveland Fire Brigade were tackling the blaze near Guisborough More than 50 firefighters have been trying to get the fire that broke out on the Mourne Mountains in County Down, Northern Ireland under control As most people basked in the glorious Easter sunshine, firefighters tackled a large wildfire on Yorkshire’s famous Ilkley Moor. A helicopter was brought in on Sunday to drop tonnes of water onto the smouldering moorland just to the south of the town in West Yorkshire. More than 100 firefighters tackled the fire in sweltering conditions at its height on Saturday afternoon. Police investigating the cause of the fire have arrested three men amid suggestions the blaze could have been deliberate. The 14 crews mobilised from across West and North Yorkshire withdrew overnight but around 70 firefighters returned to the moor on Sunday morning. The helicopter was seen scooping water from a small nearby reservoir and dropping it on the scorched ground. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all enjoyed their warmest Easter Sunday on record, according to the Met Office. Temperatures reached 23.4C at both Cardiff Bute Park, Wales, and at Scotland’s Edinburgh Royal Botanic Garden, while 21C was recorded at Helen’s Bay in Northern Ireland. More than 50 firefighters are battling to get a blaze under control that broke out on the Mourne Mountains in County Down, Northern Ireland. The fire is reportedly a mile long and the attempts to contain it are expected to last until Monday morning. Guests at Bonny’s Caravan Park near to where the fire is have been evacuated and around 200 residents nearby have been forced to leave their homes. Buses were brought in to help with the evacuation. FIRE ON THE MOORS Eyewitness Jim Beattie said he fire had spread so quickly it was “unbelievable”. Beattie said: “It was at the edge of the house here when it diverted and there are at least five fire crews here that I can see and they are starting to evacuate the homes. “We don’t know where people are being told to go. “There is no sense of panic but residents are naturally concerned and haven’t been told where to go, simply to get out. It is really raging now.” Firefighters in South Yorkshire were also battling to put out a grassland fire near Ulley Reservoir in Rotherham with five fire engines at the scene. While over on Marsden Moor near Saddleworth firefighters were at the scene of a separate fire. West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue said one fire engine from Slaithwaite Fire Station was dealing with the fire and two others from Oldham had also been dispatched. It is the sixth fire on the moor this year, according to the Nation Trust’s Facebook page. Last Sunday fire crews battle a similar fire on the moorland which also broke out near Marsden. A woodland fire also broke out in the hills above the market town of Guisborough in the Tees Valley with the Cleveland Fire Brigade tackling the blaze. A fire broke out in the same area last week as well. GUISBOROUGH FIRE A blaze also broke out on moorland on Thursday at a National Trust estate in Cheshire on the edge of the Peak District. Firefighters used hose reel jets, water backpacks and beaters to control the blaze at Lyme Park near Disley. Deborah Maxwell, general manager at Lyme, said: “The area affected was primarily moorland. Dry and hot weather makes the moors more combustible. If it’s windy, it can spread very quickly. “The National Trust has been working proactively for many years to reduce wildfire risk through restoring the moorlands and monitoring for signs of fire in hot weather. “We need our visitors’ help to prevent the risk of fire across the countryside that we care for, particularly when we experience prolonged periods of dry weather or are in drought conditions.” Earlier this month the North Yorks Moors National Park Authority issued a fire alert. Senior Ranger, Bernie McLinden, said: “It may not feel as though we’ve been basking in hot sunshine in recent weeks, but a lack of rain has led to very dry ground vegetation that could easily be ignited. “If anything, the situation is more dangerous, as people might not be aware just how great the threat is, even in April. “Fire can spread extremely quickly, as was seen in Guisborough Forest just last week, and this can cause significant damage to the landscape and its wildlife.
