High Park Fire

IMG_5778  High Park Fire aftermath 
 I've been meaning to post a picture or two from the High Park Fire devastation.  I'm thankful to say that my parents' house had absolutely no damage.  Their view has changed drastically, and the smell of fire was looming when we were there, but their home is safe.  Unfortunately, a few of their friends did lose homes, but the majority had minimal damage.  Makes you thankful for fire fighters! 

You can see the whole set of pictures I took here

The pictures are so dramatic, Karen. I'm sure your parents will have quite the view of changing landscapes for some time to come now.

I just want to cry...That one picture of the burnt tree and the save house in the background is so striking. Your family were definitely being looked after!
