We have regular 'red flag warnings' here in Flagstaff and surrounding areas, which are usually issued when its hot and windy. Which means no open fires, or shooting. It still doesn't stop idiots starting fires, though. Lots of forest areas are closed due to the risk. The lack of rain is a big problem. On our recent road trip, we visited Durango in Colorado. There was a huge wildfire just a couple of miles outside town - everywhere was smoky, and ash covered. The Durango & Silverton railroad was not running due too it. Homes had been evacuated and others were under evacuation orders. Whilst we were there, there were over a thousand firefighters trying to stop it. Presently they are trying to maintain it with 500.... It's a very sad situation... and fire season has only just begun.....Below is the view as we arrived in the evening two weeks ago.
