Thanks, I have been watching that fire daily. Luckily, we are a ways off from that. I hope the smoke isn't bad come season. Last year was tough since we were bow hunting northwest of the grizzly creek fire. Dry as hell and constant smoke haze made the hunting a challenge, but we went 1 for 2 once we got in tune with the elk.There is a good fire burning up around Steamboat right now so you might want to check out the area of it.
I'm sure that they are also getting some good moisture but I haven't really watched that area this year.
Check out this site for fire information.
Wow. Just drove through there a couple weeks ago from Estes Park to Grand Junction. Glad we didn't run into that. Detour would have been beautiful but make the drive 2x or 3x as long I would guess.A couple more pictures:
The lower portion that is covered in mud is east bound.
