Forest Service shows photos of Trinity Lakes area

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe U.S. Forest Service sent out some photos of the Trinity Lakes Recreation Area this summer, a year after last year’s devastating forest fires in the area.

This photo was taken from camping unit 8 looking across Big Trinity Lake. It looks pretty green. The recreation area, north of Mountain Home, burned in a mosaic and you’ll see both the good and the ugly.

The photo below was taken looking down into Green Island Lake. You can see the fire damaged trees along the slope in the background.

The fire burned about 24,000 acres in the area near Pine and Featherville and in the Trinity Mountains.
