High Falls Lake Forest Fire after almost 3 years

2019 June 19

On one of the days of our stay on St. Andrews Lake, we travelled through High Falls Lake. We were quite taken by the aftermath of the 2016 High Falls Lake Forest Fire. Immediately following the fire, it didn't look that bad. However, in the interim, many (most?) of the still standing trees have died. Given the minimal soil and bare rock, we expect it will take a long time for this area to recover. Here are some photos:
