My pictures don’t do justice to the beauty of the hoar frost that covered the trees this morning when I arrived at the Springs. It was cold and my fingers were freezing as I took these pics.
This was taken from the Marl Pit bridge and shows the hillside above the Indian Springs where we planned to burn.
Here is a closer look at the piles we planned to light up.
The conditions were perfect. A light but steady wind out of West and clear skies. Lindsay and Pati came out to help and enjoy the beautiful day.
Below you can see where the two forks of the Indian Springs outflow merge on their way to the Scuppernong River.
Lindsay used a leave blower to help jump start the fires when they needed a blast of air and it worked pretty darn good.
The view from the Marl Pit bridge. You can see where the channel from the Indian Springs joins the river.
We burned 22 piles today and I think we have 3-4 more day’s work to finish the piles in this area. I had to leave early so Pati and Lindsay handled the mop up operations. Thanks!
See you at the Springs!
