    “If we see a warmer, drier climate, we’re going to see more fires,” Adams said. “There’s a lot of fuel in the Adirondacks, so the potential is there. If there’s less snowpack, that biomass will dry out.”

    This is true. But NATURALLY sparked fires will still be rare. The vast majority of fires are started intentionally and unintentionally by the only beings that can create fire. More backcountry education is both necessary and critical to maintaining the resource.

    Great writing from the field, Tim, on one of the great natural episodes in an Adk lifetime. One of your best, though that’s a very tough call.
