More Carbonate Creek Maples-Gila National Forest
More photos of the maples. Some of these trees are quite large, and are certainly the tallest big tooth maples I have seen anywhere in the Gila.This was an unforgettable New Mexico/ Gila experience for me. Sadly this area may be greatly altered now due to the Silver Fire( June, 2013). UPDATE(March,2016)- Many of these trees were burned,but some are growing back from the roots. Others survived relatively intact,but some,including some large ones, are gone.
