I was actually at a fire lookout when they called in the Canyon Creek fire. The guys were saying over the radio that they were pretty sure it was arson.

I love to camp in the Bull Trout area. Arsonists should be shot on sight.

Check my post in Elk Hunting, Mule. Fires may suck for this year, but in a couple of years...

I agree Moosie, some controlled burns would be great. When I was up in Stanley I noticed that there are LOTS of beetle killed trees. Gonna be big fire if it gets that far. If the fires aren't too big and we get some rain, the grasses should put on a spurt of growth in the burns.
