On Saturday, June 23rd, 2012, we all had quite a scare up here in Estes Park ~ a fire!  There have been fires burning all around Colorado for the past few weeks, but so far we have escaped the carnage.  So we were all very frightened when a fire actually broke out up here in our peaceful little valley.  Luckily, the Fire Department got right on it, and with help from the Forestry Service air tankers, they were able to extinguish the fire a few hours later on the same day.  A big sigh of relief from us for now.  However, the danger is not over, and we are all still praying for rain to ease this record breaking heat and dryness that we are experiencing.

We were able to find a spot up on a hill overlooking the fire at the end of Upper Broadview.  From there I took photos and watched the fire fight along with many other on lookers.  Below you can see photos of the fire that I took that day.  You may click on any photo to see the larger version.
