Another example of the surprises offered up at St. Joseph Peninsula during our visit last spring. This burned area was within 1/2 mile of our camp spot. As I mentioned in an earlier post about this state park, my preconceived vision of its scenery was blown way out of the water. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that we could go from white sand beaches to a dense pine forest in less than 100-200 yards.
We never did find out any details on the fire that burned here. Then again, I'm not sure we actually asked any of the park staff. But, it didn't appear to burn too much vegetation, although there were a few buildings (at least one was someone's house) that came very close to getting damaged. I was drawn to the intense contrast it offered from the rest of the healthy, green vegetation elsewhere in the area.
