Medano Fire

Published by at 9:09 am under General Information

Last week a small fire broke out on the north end of the Sand Dunes Nat’l. Park (located NE of Alamosa).  They elected to let it burn naturally, but that has now gotten out of hand.  Dry winds have whipped the fire up to now over 2,500 acres.  Smoke can be seen from Gardner to Pueblo.  

This reminds us of the fire a few years ago that came toward Paradise Acres.  Scarry stuff.  Forecast calls for hot dry conditions next 7 days, but at least the winds are to mostly die down.  Cuchara Valley looks to be busy this weekend as most of the lodging in La Veta and Cuchara is already booked up.
