The Angora Ridge Fire in South Lake Tahoe occurred on June 24, 2007. It started in the forest behind our place by a campfire. It burned over 3100 acres and 242 homes. We were “lucky” that the wind was not blowing towards our home, but raced behind it and down the ridge.
Now, 4 years later I find I am drawn to this area over and over again. The vegetation is returning and there is a certain beauty in the burn.
These photos were taken by me during my walks with the dog over the summer in the burn area. I hope you see as much beauty as I have seen in the recovery of this area.
