The Eucumbene River rises at an elevation of 1380m and runs through the high plains of the alpine areas. Snow is still visible on the burnt out vicinity. The sheer enormity of the areas that have been incinerated in the bushfires in Australia at the beginning of 2020 is beyond imaginable. In the Snowy Mountains of south east Australia ít is almost inconceivable that an area larger than Switzerland that has been covered in ice and snow for millennia has now been reduced to ash.The 2020 "Black Summer" bushfires that swept Australia were unprecendented in their intensity and expanse. It is estimated that over 5.6 million hectares of bushland were burnt and as many as a billion native animals were incinerated. Even in the little known, but vast and unique alpine regions of Australia the devastation was almost complete. In an area normally covered by snow for four months of the year Kosciuszko National Park was extensively damaged. In areas that normally would retain moisture all year round and at elevations of over 1200m fires ripped through vast swathes of indigenous landscapes. The ferocity of the fires caused catastrophic conditions in which little survived.
