For those who do not know, Conkle Lake Prov, Park is amazing. The lake has a gorgeous beach, wonderful camp sites and is accessed via one of two routes, one being more difficult to use than the other, I've driven both.

That there is yet another fire in the province now threatening to destroy this area is heartbreaking.

I have to keep reminding myself that in every fire, there are winners and losers. The natural ecosystem needs fires right? Please remind us again, Rwede or GF or someone with a firm grasp on the fire cycle.

Drip_Torch? What have you got to offer on this fire? Anything on any maps yet? Glace?

I'm over 50, I'm full of rage lately, I have two axes and I have a huge tree stump that needs to come out. Any questions?

It's spelt Conkle lake and it's at .60 of a hectare.....and human caused. No surprise there. An absolutely beautiful Provincial park and surrounding forest. Hope it's safe.
