Date: 2009.09.08
Vantage Point: Ridge above Cinnabar Barbarian trail

Caption: Tyaughton Lake & the burn area from the May 29th Forest Fire

PhotoDescr: This panorama was taken from the end of the rocky ridge above the Cinnabar Barbarian trail. This was the best vantage to see the extent of damage from the fire that started at a campsite on Pearson Pond & burned through the whole summer consuming over 8000 Ha of forest. The fire burned across Tyaughton Lake Road & up towards Tyaughton Lake. The forestry crews set up a line of defense on Pearson Ridge southern slopes & later set a backfire on the north slope. However the fire traveled along Pearson Ridge & over to Ernie Peak on Marshall Ridge. Marshall Lake was another successful backfire saving the cabins below. This is where the fire finally ran out of fuel.
