A Personal View of Living in Durango and the Four Corners

There has been sparked another wildfire around these parts. This one is south of Mancos, Colorado, in Weber Canyon. It was first reported around 4:30 PM, and has since then consumed around 600 acres, with spot fires remaining a constant threat. The silver lining to this situation is in the fact that this fire started near a road and should be easier to fight as compared to the Little Sand fire, near Pagosa Springs, which is deep within a roadless area.
Another silver lining behind wildfires is the sunsets. Nothing can come close to creating these ominous skies, so full of passion and excitement like the fire that spawned it
