I was able to download a KLM file of the High Park Fire from the Denver Post site. Last week I had loaded a ride we did in Horsetooth Mountain Park and Lory State Park into Google Earth. (The ride that I'll eventually tell about because it has the rib-injury story attached to it, along with my first chiro visit.) Because Google Earth allows me to show both files on the same view, you can see below how the edge of the fire touched the edge of the Timbers/Kimmons loop in Lory State Park and it looks like the fire burned across part of the trail. I think it burned across right where I had taken a photo of the turkey vulture a few weeks ago and posted it on Facebook.

It looks like – so far – that the impact to Lory State Park is minimal.

 

Fingers crossed it remains that way.
