Don't let the moment pass you by.
Like many, I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a winter snow storm over the #easttrouboesomefire that is crawling through @rockynps
The fire grew by over 100,000 acres in 12 hours from Wednesday night until Thursday AM. It was spotted as far east as the Fern Lake area on Thursday, but cloudy weather and thick smoke make it difficult for officials to observe let alone suppress the fire.
Firefighters are focusing on structure protection around Moraine Park and the YMCA of the Rockies and use Bear Lake Road as line to fight the fire should the winds send the fire roaring east, again, as the winds are expected to pick up tonight and tomorrow ahead of the winter storm, expected Sunday into Monday.
I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to spend during my 5 trips to the park but am aware that both landscapes I have seen and those I have not can change in an instance due to fire and flood.
