Lots of smoke……………..

The Forest Service has been doing a number of prescribed burns in the area, the largest of them on the West slope of Natapoc Ridge, that has put a lot of smoke into the area for several days. This picture was taken Thursday, Oct 10th.  This is no doubt kind of a nuisance but that’s the worst of it-  this is cleaning up a lot of fuels that could give us a real problem fire in July or August.

Control Burn on Natapoc Ridge

The Forest Service has been working a control burn of 140 acres on Natapoc Ridge.  The photo was taken on Tuesday evening by Ross Williams looking East towards the State Park Beach from North Shore.  Natapoc was thinned a couple of years ago.
