There is a wildfire burning near Boulder that you may have heard about. We are a safe distance away, but 169 people have already lost their homes. My heart hurts for those people and I wish them nothing but good fortune in the future.

We happened to be out driving around on Monday on our way to a state park. We took some pictures not knowing what it was at first.

Driving through Boulder you could smell the fire, and when we got to the point where the roads were closed off you could see ash falling on the car window.

On our way back we got a few more pictures.
