360 Panorama, Portal Rodeo Hiking Club - November 18, 2010

A 360 degree panorama from trail 240, the Burro Trail, in South Fork Canyon on the eastern side of the Chiricahua Mountains.  The images for this panorama were collected  on the weekly Portal Rodeo Hiking Club trip at the Red Rocks overlook, approximately halfway between the South Fork trail head and Horseshoe Saddle at an elevation of 6100'. The small areas of burned forest visible were the result of the widely advertised 2010 Horseshoe fire. Note there is minimal damage from this years fire along the Burro Trail in South Fork Canyon and grasses have grown over much of the forest floor where the fire passed through.  Also see Chiricahua Sky Island, Rodeo for images of the fall colors.
