BTW nice report.
I am not up to date on all the fire details as I didn't know it happened until I got there and saw the burnt trees. I did do a little reading just now and according to the LA times ~1.3million trees burned and less than 200,000 are expected to survive. Total area of the fire was over 40,000 acres before it was contained.
I usually go out that way at least 2-3 times a year so will be interesting to see how the recovery progresses over the next decade. Hopefully the joshua trees can make a comeback.
