Just wondering if Colorado is all smoky from the Arizona fires? If the winf has pushed the smoke in that direction? We are headed out to Durango, CO leaving Glasgow, KY this Friday. If anyone has any Smoke information I would like to hear it!!!
Thanks!!!

:agree:

On some days it makes for spectacular sunsets. This morning, I could smell the smoke outside, but not this afternoon. It certainly is not near as bad here in Denver as it is for those unfortunate folks in Arizona.

We could spare some more. Actually our place is about 35 miles West of the Wallow fire. Very little smoke since the winds are blowing toward the NE. When the winds quit the smoke starts to come in.

sjones --

You are going to have one of the best vacations of your life! When I was a kid our family used to vacation about every other year in CO and I loved it then. Our kids are now gone but they had some great times learning to ski there and also hiking in the Granby area. Now the boss and I go at least once a year and just love it, NEVER get tired of the mtns. Very much looking forward to Rockies Gold this year, staying an extra week this time :thumbup:

We just returned from there! We stayed in Pueblo for 3 nights and the Smoke hid the mountain range but when we moved to Montrose, you can't get any better scenery. By the way, if you can "Ride IH70" east to west or vice versa. Unbelievable.......
