The Great Outdoors: Aftermath of the Substation Fire

On July 17, 2018, a fire started on private land southeast of The Dalles and strong winds carried it more than twenty miles up the Deschutes River as the Substation Fire torched the slopes on both sides of the river. For this week’s Great Outdoors,  Gary Lewis looks at the aftermath of the fire in Mack’s Canyon on the Lower Deschutes.
