Reblazing the LP/SRT on the Wurtsboro Ridge, April 2009.
On April 18-19, 2009, at least 400 acres (I think it was a lot more) burned on the Wurtsboro Ridge http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20090420/NEWS/904200318). At least half of my section of the LP/SRT was affected. Although in parts the trail had acted as a fire barrier, in other parts it had burned right across the trail. A lot of blazes were completely gone or had been badly damaged, and the trail was closed for more than a week. On April 28 I reblazed the entire section, and took the pictures shown. I got out at sunset. Also see: http://jaep.smugmug.com/gallery/8055160_dkZYc#524631266_RoUSHRead More
