Last month, I drove up Highway 200 towards Potomac, MT to watch the burning of slash piles off Gold Creek Road. The piles were the result of a forest restoration project on a large parcel of privately owned forest land south of Sheep Mountain. The majority of the land is owned by The Nature Conservancy.
Once the weather turned cold and there was some snow on the ground, the piles were set ablaze. I shot quite a lot of video (for treesource.org), including this cool time-lapse sequence.
