Hazy Skies

It has been smoky on the mountain with all of the forest fires burning in the west. From the valley bottom it has been hard to even see the Continental Divide at times. CDOT finally got the I-70 corridor through Glenwood Canyon open this morning which helped to alleviate the detour traffic issue on US Highway 50. Kudos to the fire fighters and CDOT staff that have worked tirelessly to get it reopened after a two week closure. We are all looking forward to some rain.
