South Dakota: Prescribed fire at Wind Cave NP

Today we were graciously allowed to observe a prescribed fire at Wind Cave National Park in southwest South Dakota. The projected surrounded a campground, Elk Mountain Campground, and comprises 93 acres. We watched while the National Park Service firefighters skillfully burned around campsites and structures. We shot a couple of hundred photos.... here are 33 of them.

A big THANKS to the Fire Management and Interpretive staffs at Wind Cave.

Bill - Nice photos. It is good to see fire on the ground at Wind Cave, but it will take a little getting used to not being a part of it. CW
