July 30, 2009
Moccasin Basin lies right on the continental divide and is marked by sweeping meadows alternating with dense forest as well as some more open forest. It is a wildlife paradise and I have watched many varieties of wildlife from the end of the road that sits right on the divide. A large forest fire swept through the area several years ago and to the west are burned ridges with blackened trees right up to the spot I am sitting. The fire stopped at this point. This view is eastward across one of these meadows towards the Pinnacles where I have spent the majority of my morning.
