Ely Fire

I was up in Ely this weekend. The fire from a week ago has scarred the south side of Ely on Hwy 1. You can see several homes that were surrounded by burnt trees that were saved by firefighters. Already the green has been returning. Usually after a fire, some of the first flowers to emerge is fireweed. Fireweed produces some of the lightest honey in the world.
