It breaks my heart that the Columbia Gorge is currently on fire and being completely destroyed. I spent a lot of time out there before I moved to Idaho a year and a half ago and it is one of the most beautiful and scenic places I've ever been to. It makes me sick to my stomach that the fire was started by some brainless dumb fuck kids throwing illegal fireworks off the trail. The level of ignorance and lack of trail etiquette these days is too overwhelming, maybe this will be a wake up call for people to stop being so stupid. I now feel so fortunate to be able to experience the Gorge in all it's glory before it was destroyed.
