    Wildfire at Tea Time Hill

    I drove the area this am and road bike out this evening. I didn’t see a whole lot of hot burn but there was some parallel to rr tracks. It mostly looked like duff burnt and then the smoke killed the vegetation. Some spots were crispy but the majority was not.

    It was open last night I drove it around 9pm. Not a very hot burn in that section.

    Wildfire at Tea Time Hill

    It was as of Monday night. But you can easily park before memorial and walk about 50 feet to it. I’ll be driving roads tonight and will see if it still is. I drove in from friendship all the way down caranza on Monday since there was no blockade at friendship.

    Wet Forest - Formerly Known as Dry Forest

    Heard lots of thunder in distance but nothing in Shamong. That storm was right where fire is, hopefully it helped.

    Wildfire at Tea Time Hill

    That is a great look right there. That outer edge looks like a hot burn. I’m guessing they backfired from rr tracks. Interesting to see how hot it burn outside the source area.

    Wildfire at Tea Time Hill

    Here is the polygon. This equates to around 5k acres which is about right. I only could see backfire which appeared to be very low intensity.

    Wildfire at Tea Time Hill

    Very stupid reason for a fire, not surprising but just dumb. I drove much of the area today. It’s backfired from entrance to Batona camp off caranza on northeast side all the way down to speedwell. It’s then backfired from speedwell to eagle. From eagle to Harris station and back up to white...

    Turtle And A Hognose

    It’s interesting you mentioned chipmunks. When I first bought by house there was a ton of them. Then all a sudden they died off and I guess it was an increase in predators. This past week I saw one for the first time in 4 years or so. Same for my folks house in barrington. Regarding the turtles...

    Turtle And A Hognose

    That’s usually pretty accurate guy. The back of the carapace and small tail and behavior made me think male. Either way it’s always nice seeing them and never gets old.

    Turtle And A Hognose

    Your he box turtle is a she Guy. She is probably stuffed with eggs and that is why she was feisty and energetic. They can’t sit still just before egg laying.

    Turtle And A Hognose

    Guy I’m guessing that box turtles has spent ample time in a bog with lots of iron in it. It’s likely a very old box turtle.

    Tabernacle Mayor

    She should move far away from the Nacle. She doesn’t deserve to live there with those thoughts. Go to suburbs of Camden county.

    Ye Great Cedar Swamp

    Like seeing you branch out to some new areas. The southern barrens or barren like doesn’t get enough attention.

    Red Flag Warning

    Well it’s not a great idea when species emerge from hibernation in slow state are sitting at surface and a fire rolls through. Box turtles are sitting usually in a small pile of leaves or needles right now but up from small burrows or forms. They will burn easily as they aren’t at water sources...

    Red Flag Warning

    Is there currently a fire? It smells awfully Smokey in Shamong. Seems late for control burn unless they are trying to kill emerging wildlife like dopes!
