Sad. Thanks for posting.
It will be years before the lake holds enough water to have a fishery again. The positive is that the complete burn off eliminated the thick bushes and shrubs that the undesirables to be able to hide in and do their thing. They're still at it down the canyon. I do see that even a burnt out cement table on a moonscape is worthy of "claiming". They must be running out of nice places to deface.
I do have to chuckle at the numerous reports of Lost Lake having no bottom. Pretty much was never more then 12 feet deep at it's best.
At least it looks as if someone took the time to pick-up all of the trash. Kudos to whomever did it!
Kinda sad looking.

Sadly, just minutes before the fire reached the lake, the last helo dipped water out and raced to try and save some houses up the canyon. The entire area was still covered with the trash of several decades till the fire hit. When you walk the ground now, you are amazed at the amount of broken glass.
