Wildfires to Wildflowers

My favorite campsite is located just outside of Yosemite in the Stanislaus National Forest. Last year the Rim Fire, California's third largest fire, burned over 250,000 acres around the area. The trees are still pretty brown and crispy, but the forest is definitely starting to recover. Wildflowers were growing all place and these are just the ones I was able to get to.

It'll probably take quite a few years for the place to become as green and lush as it used to be, but for now, it's interesting to see how a forest is reborn.
