We spent the weekend camping in the area and hit up some of the Cabin Loop trails for some short day hikes. Before heading home Sunday evening, I ventured a short way up the U-Bar Trail, which is currently serving as the north edge of a closure area while the lightning-caused Tucker Fire is allowed to burn. It was neat to see the fire up close as it just burns through the underbrush, devouring all the grass, and most of the dead wood on the ground. It seemed to kill most of the smaller pines with just its heat ... I don't know if these small trees recover after a fire or not. Its a good year up there moisture-wise. I can't remember another time where a fire at the end of June was not an explosive problem on the Rim. Happy its not an issue this year though!
