While I was clicking on the photos for Andy’s post below, I ran across this video of the floods in Manitou Springs following the Waldo Canyon fire.
The Forest Service, state and county and NGO collaborators are all working very hard to mitigate this.. here are some photos from a recent SAF field trip of their mitigation efforts. I was really impressed how everyone is working together and especially how the water people are stepping up financially.
The good news is that I can post these photos legally, as I took them. The bad news is that I am not a very good photographer. Maybe we can crowdfund Larry to make a trip out here?
Tree-lovers: those dark green patches are scrub oak coming back.
