File:Burnt Forest at Rocky Point Trail of Glacier National Park USA.jpg


Description This photo vividly shows a burnt forest. The forest fire happened one year ago in summer 2003. Some rare woodpeckers only inhabit recently burnt forest; the burnt forest also provides a chance for botanist to study plant succession in a dramatically altered ecosystem, and for geologists to study the landscape without being covered by vegetation.
