⚠️FOLLOW UP⚠️, since this went kinda viral: Good news!! The trees and plants around Hanging Lake have been mostly spared, even though they are now within the fire’s perimeter. Picture below was taken today from a helicopter. https://t.co/FW5UgcllGIpic.twitter.com/4xYWUP17fk
The news only gets worse. Fire is still 0% contained, over 6000 acres, and is now threatening one of the most beautiful little spots in all of Colorado, Hanging Lake.😔 #PrayForRainpic.twitter.com/igeJasCqio
UPDATE: Good news! The trail to Hanging Lake is no longer as beautiful, but the USFS tells us the immediate area surrounding the lake did not burn! Here's a photo of the area still in tact. Fire came very close but spared the area right around the lake. pic.twitter.com/6k0JJBsqYB
Time to take Squirrel for a walk in a campfire. The wildfires in CO are so intense. The Glenwood Canyon drive will never be the same in our lifetime. Having never seen Hanging Lake, I am thankful to know it has survived, thus far.
