    Earlier today I drove up to Lake George, Colorado, the area where the Hayman fire started a couple of months ago. I found a good map of the area that shows where the fire burned. Hackett, Longwater and Metberry Gulches are just about in the center of the destruction and the forest service has closed all access to all the burned sections of Pike National Forest indefinitely. They're concerned about flash floods and erosion now that there is no vegetation to slow down the rain as it runs off the moutainsides. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif So it looks like we won't be able to play (or fish!) in that area for quite a while. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    Yup, just one idiot can spoil it for many people. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
