Although we are many miles from the closest fire [High Park], smoke can often be seen and smelled here in Boulder. With the high heat, low humidity, gusty winds, lack of rain, and beetle-kill in many forests, it could be a long and dangerous fire season. Waldo Canyon is a favorite running loop close to Colorado Springs, so it may be a sad day when I make it back to that trail.
