I went to Richfield, UT, a week ago to hop on a helicopter. The Fishlake NF was taking flights over a few year-old burn scars to see how their treatments were doing. I was trying out a process for data collection on another project I was working on. I learned: it didn't work!
It was overcast and raining the entire flight so I had to post-process these photos to get anything out of them. I took about 115 photos and during the first 100 (and first hour of the flight), I felt great. Then the nausea hit and I slowed way down. I didn't barf, but I probably could have!
Yeah, burned forest.
Evidence of floods; water came from bottom left, hit the bank on top right and ate a bunch of it away, then flowed to top left. I think. I'm no hydrologist.
Evidence of more floods; pile of logs in this area outside the fire is a result of debris coming off the mountain.
The helicopter I flew in.
