Morris Fire burn area on
Glendora Mountain Road
The Morris Fire occurred in August 2009, burning an area either side of the San Gabriel River near the Morris Reservoir. A look at botanical recovery from the fire in March 2010 adjacent to Highway 39 is presented in another page of this gallery. The present page takes a slightly later look at the fire recovery in the eastern extremity of the burn area, high on the ridge adjacent to Glendora Mountain Road.
