“The wound is the place where the light enters you.”
-Rumi

With the high heat and low humidity of summer upon us, wildfire season is in full swing. Lightning is one of the main culprits for many of the fires we see on the Arizona Strip. The tall ponderosa trees on the higher peaks such as Mt. Logan or Mt. Trumbull are magnets for lightning strikes. This tree, for example, was struck by lightning several years ago but amazingly it did not burn. It didn’t even die. The powerful force of the lightning bolt was not enough to kill the evergreen tree. It only left it with a blackened scar twisting around the trunk.
