A fire started up in
today. I didn’t even now about it until
Candy came home from the store and said did you hear about the fire and pointed
to the smoke. I grabbed the camera and
headed off in the truck to Manitou. I
needed gas so I stopped at the 7-11 located on Highway 24 and Waldo Canyon Manitou Avenue. I
took these pictures around 2:15pm from the parking lot while filling the tank.
As of tonight they are still fighting the fire.
is very well
visited hiking location. I have done it
a couple of times but don’t like the number of people on the trail. A lot of tourist visit it so if I had to take
a guess, we will find out that this fire was probably started by a cigarette. Waldo
The heat that we have had the last several weeks hasn’t helped any. I believe today they reported that we broke a record as it was 100 today. Everything around here is drying up.
