I have seen most of these posts in "RV Parks, National Parks, State Campgrounds & More". People just want information before they visit. Thanks for the info.

We are here on the west slope in Ouray. Nothing but blue sky, a few clouds floating by and a light breeze. Campgrounds for the most part are half empty. The old Country Village CG, just south of Montrose, is now a Jellystone CG. They looked to have about a half dozen rigs camped there when we drove by yesterday. They must have about 150 sites there. Lots of good camping here on the west slope for folks that have been displaced by the front range fires.

It is absolutely amazing the images and video that our local news is showing of the conflagration. I wonder how news of this event is covered in other parts of the country.

Frank, I am in the Pacific Northwest and the news is what you can see on the National News Broadcast and what you can get on the internet.

I was just curious as to how it is being reported. I try to not watch too much news media, but this "local" story has captured my attention!! The photo below from this link made me sit up and take notice even more!



Now I agree it is a very dramatic photo shot as the sun is most likely behind the clouds.... but OMFG!!!

Some of the photos of other structure fires are just as amazing to see. I heard that some 30,000+ people have been evacuated! Woodland Park has 1/3 of its residence have been evacuated with the rest on advisory.

Now Denver news WB channel is reporting rumors of arson! I just hope that information is not sensationalism.

The fire in Waldo Canyon is thought to be arson! We have evacuated our facility up on Rockrimmon and also our Fort Collins facility due to the fire over there. Heard from a peer there in CS that the USAF academy is being threatened and has been evacuated also. Fort Collins was a lightening strike, still doesn't make it any better for those losing homes. 100 so far confirmed destroyed in the Waldo fire.
