We got an email at 5:30 Saturday morning saying that the Fern Lake Fire in Rocky Mountain National Park had erupted and was moving quickly due to 75 mph winds. There had been about 1,100 evacuations of Moraine campground, the YMCA and private homes.

Phil and I were invited to the Press Conference at 10:00 am followed by a short drive in to the park to get some photographs. It was very disturbing to see the red fire clouds in so many spots in Moraine Park and the surrounding areas.


The fire was spotting a mile beyond itself which presented a lot of problems to the firefighters. Moraine Park was mostly burned out.

    Awesome and ominous photos of nature’s fierce response to being violated, sometimes
    by one of its own kin. Sincerely hope that its fury will soon be defused before it does
    further damage to the beauty that it has created in your mountain retreat.
