That's horrible but I've been expecting it. I'm along the front range, east side of La Veta Pass. We've had so much rain it's melting the snow
pack at a faster rate. Even a little rain at altitude can turn into a torrent if it starts melting all that snow.
That's a mountain of dirt/rocks. The right side of the landscape is black compared to the left, looks like a burn scar. The southwest was hard hit by
wild fires last year. I'm sure there's lots of scars. Everyone in Springs is keeping an eye on waldo canyon.
We need to be very careful when hiking. Ground saturation causes rocks/boulders to become unstable. Lots of hikers out there this weekend. Hope they
all make it back home safe/sound.
