Yellow Pine Times Home Page

Welcome to the Yellow Pine Times Home Page 2004.  The website has really grown.  Several NEW pages have been added, the history section has been expanded.  Scroll down the home page for a bit of local news and recent photos.  I'm still updating the site as often as I can.  Note there are a couple new "buttons. We hope to have some backcountry humor posted soon.  The Yellow Pine Times is a not-for-profit website (and sometimes newspaper) serving the village Yellow Pine, Idaho (and those who wish to be here.)  This is just a hobby, folks ~ I hope you enjoy ~ "Railroad" Sue ~ If you need to contact me, substitute an @ sign for the (at) in this email address:   yptimes2(at)      Last updated 07-30-04

Prescribed Burn

The Krassel Ranger District, Payette National Forest would like to thank the community of Yellow Pine for their hospitality, co-operation, and support for the Parks-Eiguren Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project.  The goals of the prescribed burn were to reduce fuels, large logs, ladder fuels, small trees, etc.  Also to remove fuels along FS/private property boundaries around Yellow Pine.
There were places smoldering and flaring up for weeks - and it may still be going up there somewhere - so keep on the look out for smoke now the weather has warmed up!
