Pine Beetles doing their thing

This pictures are from a trip to Colorado in December. Among other great adventures and stories, a friend told us about this county's (and a lot of CO and WY) trouble with the pine beetles killing all the trees. Clearing forests with ease. Nothing I have read about seems to provide any substantial solution. Here is hoping nature steps in, with several days of -20 degree weather. That seems to be the only way. Here are some views of the landscape. It still looks pretty to me.

Good times with those snow shoes.

um, pine beetles just love them some pine. and those look like some pretty hefty boots there. red wings? gortex perhaps?
