Kinder Crossing after the Tinder Fire

Post by pixelfrog » Sep 20 2018 2:16 pm

Anyone been back down to Kinder Crossing since the Tinder fire? Curious on the damage. The fire intensity map indicated that some of the area may have been somewhat spared from complete devastation.

Bump. Anyone yet? Curious how badly the Tinder fire burned up the area last summer.

Tinder has always been on fire for me.

Lame video, but it appears that there are still SOME trees..... [ youtube video ]

Also ran across this brief, recent trip report from about June 20th... The video may have been BEFORE Coldwater...

"The Coldwater fire went through this area a week or so ago. It is sad to see the Kinder Crossing area absolutely scorched. Almost all of the pines were burned, therefore eliminating the possibility of shade. The temperature was 78F and after about 30 minutes we had to turn around as our dog was overheating. It was interesting to see firsthand the damage of the fire. It’s still beautiful in the canyon, but in a different way."

@hikeaz I didn't think the Coldwater Fire moved that far north.
