The National Geographic Society has a great article about the wildfire epidemic in the west from the Rocky Mountains to the Coast of California where wildfires are burning bigger, hotter and closer to home. The article details why this is happening and provides some great insight into the situations throughout the west. Having grown up in Forest Service Family, I am absolutely obsessed with wildfires and the situations in our National Forests. As a true conservationist I want to see healthy forests and amazing wilderness areas.
