Since black out is the new rage it seems even the Sierra Nevada is on the bandwagon. I think the color match goes well with Velocity Blue. Thoughts?

Might not be a good time to attempt humor about the burned up forest lands, a lot of active fires and collateral damage happening right now.
It is good to see the burned timber being harvested though. SPI has done a fantastic job of post-fire forest management in the area I live. Hopefully they'll be encouraged to continue proactive forest management as time goes on.

Well the original post went way over my head haha.

After reading this is makes sense now though...
 
I got the joke and thought it was funny as a fellow Californian. But dark humor isn't for everyone.

Fire has been a part of the Sierra Nevada range for much longer than people have been here. Only difference now is more homes mixed in amongst those trees. I think it's comparable to the mid west and tornadoes. Yet people still rebuild in the same areas. May speak to our resiliency as a species and determination to conquer our environment. We each have a different way of dealing with it.

This was part of the Creek Fire burn area. Its where I have spent my life going to get away. The scale of the devastation shows the awesome power of fire and its terror.

My observation is the irony of this area is the intensity of the fire was man made. Old pictures of the area from the 1890s-1900s show a much more open forest because the natives would regularly burn it when they would leave for the winter. The fires would not get hot enough to kill the trees. Photos show the forest had gotten denser and denser over time. Analysis of density measured in board feet per acre increases shows this to be a fact and not just an observation. Interestingly the areas that didn't burn, where the trees survived, or where Fire Fighters made their stand successfully were often places that had burned or had various levels of logging activity in the past few decades. The protected areas, including the Kaiser Wilderness, seemed to get hit the hardest.

Dark humor? Yes.

Interesting? I think so.

Your observations are spot on. I hope you didn't find my original reply disrespectful. I currently have a very close family member that is on day 6 of evacuation due to the Dixie fire. I live in the woods, and the devastation of catostrophic wildfires is on the forefront of my mind, my problem.
Humor is good for everyone! Rock on! ? By the way, your truck does look fantastic in front of that big log deck! This is a forum about trucks after all!

No offense taken.

That pile of lots looked small until I drive up to it.
