There aren't many pine trees up here, so it's odd to see that some of them burned recently  I hike up the old road to Tough Nut Mine, which hasn't been used by vehicles in many years and is slowly returning to natureThumbnailsIt's a bit past 17h when I finally arrive at the Tough Nut Mine ruins I hike up the old road to Tough Nut Mine, which hasn't been used by vehicles in many years and is slowly returning to natureThumbnailsIt's a bit past 17h when I finally arrive at the Tough Nut Mine ruins I hike up the old road to Tough Nut Mine, which hasn't been used by vehicles in many years and is slowly returning to natureThumbnailsIt's a bit past 17h when I finally arrive at the Tough Nut Mine ruins I hike up the old road to Tough Nut Mine, which hasn't been used by vehicles in many years and is slowly returning to natureThumbnailsIt's a bit past 17h when I finally arrive at the Tough Nut Mine ruins I hike up the old road to Tough Nut Mine, which hasn't been used by vehicles in many years and is slowly returning to natureThumbnailsIt's a bit past 17h when I finally arrive at the Tough Nut Mine ruins

I'm guessing that this damage might be part of the 2005 "Hackberry Complex" fires that burned some of Mojave National Preserve.
