With fire raging on the mountain range west of Colorado Springs, we had already decided to spend the day visiting our daughter Holly in Boulder, Colorado. It was a very hot day and we did a lot of walking around the downtown Pearl Street Mall area and the park.
Above, I am "The Big Girl" on the right. That's what I call myself lately since I have put on some pounds. Our daughter and her Dad below:
We had breakfast at the historic cultural center known as Chatuauqua Dining Hall:
One of the many entertainers on the mall:
Boulder Creek going through the park.......
Upon returning to Colorado Springs, we could see the fire smoke over the city and a new fire below in Queen's Canyon just above what is called "The Scar" where rock was once quarried out of the mountain and green is slowing growing back:
This photo below was taken this morning and you can see how bad the smoke is from the 3 areas of fires, Waldo Canyon, Williams Canyon and Queens Canyon all on top of the mountain range:
We appreciate your prayers for the firefighters and personnel involved as 4600 acres are involved. No homes destroyed yet. Also, if this is an arsonist -pray whoever it is - is CAUGHT!
