    There are currently a couple of 2,000+ acre wildfires burning in the mountains near the towns of Bailey and Loveland, Colorado. Any of you ColoradoK5er's affected by either of these? [​IMG] I sure hope not!

    I am in a suburb of Denver (Highlands Ranch) and last night I went out on my deck and there were small ashes falling from the sky, real weird.

    That must have been bizarre! I'm not that far away from Highlands Ranch. I live in the foothills of northern Colorado Springs, near the Air Force Academy. LOTS of trees in our area has me worried about the dry conditions. One spark could run a fire up the canyon behind our place in just a few minutes. [​IMG]

    I live in Littleton, CO and also had ashes falling. It's amazing how far that smoke and ash travels since the fires are at least 50 miles away. I've been checking out http://www.9news.com for the latest details. The 2 fires have already burned more than 6000 acres.

    Well I believe florida stays on fire all summer. Just remember mother nature does this by herself sometimes and sometimes she has help... It all makes way for new life although it inconveniences us. So when your 4 wheel'n be careful I'd hate to see one started by a careless 4x4er. Then you all know what happens stricter laws and then nobody can enjoy mother nature in a 2 ton piece of heavy metal.

    Wasn't me.............
