Black Forest Fire
You may have seen something about this horrible fire in the national news. I took this picture of the smoke plume from the guest bedroom balcony Tuesday afternoon when the fire was first stirring up. It's located northeast of Colorado Springs and about 40-45 miles south of us. As of this morning it had burned about 8,000 acres and destroyed about 100 homes. Since Tuesday we really haven't been able to see a plume as the wind has shifted so it's coming from the south and we are in the plume.
Very sad, as this same general area was hit by the destructive Waldo Canyon Fire a year ago.
