The 6,800-hectare blaze — dubbed the Spreading Creek fire — was sparked by a lightning strike almost two weeks ago.

It has torn through approximately 2,500 hectares of national park land, making it one of the fastest burning fires officials have seen in years.

zine | not at the mall | phase 7 | flora/fauna | rose hip
rose hips and rose petals are edible
in the same family as apples
have a bit of the tartness of crabapples
a great source of vitamin C
the best time to harvest rose hips is after the first frost (frost helps sweeten the flavour)
