  Hackberry Complex Fire, Lobo Point, Mojave National Preserve, San Bernardino, California
Photograph taken October 15, 2005.

In the Lobo Point campground there was one Pinyon that was perhaps 3-4 feet tall when I first camped there in 1980. Over the years, it grew to more than 12 feet tall. However, it looks too badly burned to survive. This would be in the extreme right of the photograph link a left. Panning to the left, though, one can see a Juniper that is scorched and brown on one side, but not burned. Then an Antelope Bitterbrush (Purshia tridentata (Pursh) DC ssp. glandulosa (Curran) M. E. Jones), a Box Thorn (Lycium cooperi A. Gray), and finally a large Pinyon (Pinus monophylla Torrey & Fremont) that did not burn. These plants should provide seed to re-establish the vegetation in this little valley.
