Central Hills collapsing

East River photos after the jump.

Predicted for at least ten years, Hill City is now in deep shit.

Cattle grazing has sealed the town's fate: every pine tree within twenty miles is dead or dying. Catastrophic wildfire is merely a matter of time. Silver City, Deerfield, Edelweiss, Rockerville: all could be toast in as little as two hours.

Most of the these photos were taken on south Castle Creek, not far as the crow flies from Pe Sla:

green-dyed weed killer sprayed willy-nilly

cattle shitting in sensitive watershed

diversity preserving some zones
