    rode white ranch this morning and the wind was RIPPING up there. Looking to the east from the top of Belcher - nothing much would have stopped a fire this morning. dry, dry, dry. made me think twice about flicking my cigarettes during my 5 smoke breaks during the belcher climb.
    Spiral out, keep going...

    Yeah, the year of the Hayman fire (2002?) all of the Pike Nat'l Forest was closed to bikers/hikers/etc. That meant that pretty much all of our front range trails in the Springs were closed since most of them feed into the PNF at some point.

    All it takes is one idiot and a cigarette (or in this case, more likely several idiots and some high explosives)....
