Default Devastation of Paradise

One of my friends who resides in Paradise took me on a tour of the devastation up there. His house is the only one left standing on his road. The whole area has tons of forest roads we used to run around in when we were younger. These days most are gated, but we managed to carve out about 56 miles of off road. We had invited a few other of the locals, many others had lost their 4x4s along with their homes unfortunately.

We headed up HWY 70 and passed Scooters to Rim Road and onto Concow road. We went to the Flea Mountain comm site for a panorama of the devastation, Literally a swath of destruction right towards Concow. The trees in that area were small, and had been planted by the Forestry Service after the 2008 Fire.

My Buddy in his Raptor lead the column with me in the rear...the theory was since I had the dust reducing snorkel I could stand it better than the others...I think he just didn't want the Power Wagon showing him up.




Lake Concow in the distance:






One side completely untouched. The forest service and Calfire did a major defense of the Flea Mountain site due to the importance of all the comms going through it.

We Made our way towards Inskip to check out another comm site that overlooked Magalia. From the old fire look out I could see the lake and where another one of my friends homes used to be across the canyon.

Then we went to goof off on the rocks of Bottle Hill, before heading to the bridge to let the dogs play in the water.





I think we know who will win...the one with all the POWER.






At the River, its a cool place, but can be very sketchy. There has been murders here.

We Finally Made camp up the river in the Inskip Area. The temperature was great, the river was cold, unfortunately running to fast for fishing.

I'm thinking that if normal logging activities and forest management were done Paradise would still be there. Instead we have insane climate change zealots running the world. And we can see the consequences.

During our explorations in Inskip out in the middle of know where a small family flagged us down because they got their UTV stuck. The battery had died so they made camp, but over the night the locals came and removed the ignition, damaged the steering column so it couldn't steer, and tried to strip equipment. The forest road was rough and way out there, amazing anyone found it. My buddy volunteer to recover their UTV while we walked behind and moved it to avoid getting snagged. They were able to trailer their UTV and head home.

Yea, unfortunately California hates logging, and foresters are taught that logging is bad and the feel its a burden for them to process the permits, mark the trees and WLPZ, etc. And then it just leads to an industry that barely gets by. White woods (soft conifers) don't sell well, and the locals would probably be in arms if there was a pulp mill built.

The story of Paradise, coming to every small mountain town near you if the tree huggers / climate alarmists continue to have their way.
