this would be near the same area that burned last year. God I pray that it stays away from LNF & GNP high country. Because that area is a HUGE tender box of unimaginaeable proportion that has not burned in decades !

Hard to imagine it was a camper... as there is little-to-no camping in that area of the nat'l park. But, I suppose time will tell...

There is no camping in that area. So a Smoker or someone started it.
