More skies and burning dead pine trees

The sky from a different angle, across from the base of the Bluff to the town. More interesting clouds. No seals and it was very cold and windy. We came home and went up to see what John had been doing abut a line of radiata pine trees that had died a few years ago in the drought, they were unsightly and some were falling over. They are so unpredictable it was decided to try and burn then from the base and see what would happen. It was dry and with the wind in the right direction today. but I think it is going to be a long job. Rather interesting shapes against the sky.

Those trees certainly look a bit unsteady, but at least there are no houses nearby.

Pines can be some of the most flammable of the trees -- all that sap I guess. The two big fires in our western states are being fueled by pine trees. Good to get them down and gone if possible.
