Where are these fires?

I guess this means more trips to Moab for me. If I don't sell the bike first. If Rampart goes up, it will be 10 years before they think about opening it up. 68,000 acres so far and they predict it will be 100,000 by tomorrow. It also is officailly the biggest fire ever in CO.
Good luck to the firemen and smoke jumpers. Hope they can get some kind of hold on this soon. And that they don't get hurt doing so.

You can bet I'll be saying a little prayer for the firefighters working on that one.

Waldon area - Grizzly Helena trail
Steamboat - Hahns Peak area
Southeastern Utah is WAY too hot in the Summer, stick to the spring and fall.
There is still alot of good riding, your just going to be driving further!

I agree with Gee that there are many other places to ride (so far). But there is nothing like Rampart. Only 40 minutes from Denver with miles and miles of trails through the trees. Plus it was the first to open and and last to close in colder months. It looks like only mountain riding for a while. Day trips from Denver area are Idaho Springs or Breckenridge (Webster Pass and Red Hill).
You never know what you got until it's gone. I will miss Rampart if it goes totally up.
