Nothing New on Apr Fools

Hayman Burn Area from April Fools Claim

This is a picture of the Hayman Burn from the vantage point of CSMS April Fools Claim.  The claim remained true to its namesake and we were skunked today, but it is the first of April.  Bob and I felt obligated to visit the claim today.  You may notice many dead/burned trees in the picture.  These trees were burned down about 10 years ago by a jealous forest ranger who burned a dear Jane letter in the middle of the forest.  Due to her rage and inconsiderate act the state of Colorado lost over 100,000 acres of forest land and wildlife habitat.  I believe a few homes were lost as well.  She did about 8 years in jail.  I think she should do some community service and plant some saplings as well.
