Clockum and fire

Looking at the fire map, it appears some of the Clockum along the Columbia may have burned.
Gathering is easy. Hunting is a challenge.

Yep, it's been burning south of the Malaga area, and there's a couple on the other side of the river around Quincy. It's getting to where I just expect to see the colockum on fire every summer now.

My friends lost all of their pasture.  It was still going pretty good over toward Ephrata when I talked to them yesterday.

I am friends with families up Moses Coulee and pretty much everything that could burn off has burned off, so they are pretty safe at this point.  I was talking with one of them Wednesday evening on the way home from work.  Their pasture is all burned off though and that is a huge issue.  So much water this winter and spring that the cheatgrass was waist high when I was over there a week and a half ago and now that it is dry it is a wildfire waiting for a spark.  The upside is that there was a lot of really big sage in the side coulees and that made them pretty tough to get up into, a lot of that is burned off.
