    I think Williams might be gone at this point... I can't help but think about coming down that just six days ago. If we had done that trail today we would have no choice but to track back up the hill as fast as possible. That is really scary and really hits home to me right now. I hope no hikers and bikers are trapped in the canyon.

    Edit: they are now saying 600 acres....

    >2000 acres now and zero percent contained. Williams gone? That would suck massively. I can think of some other trails that'll be toast, too. This is so much worse than some loss of trails, of course...

    Still lots of smoke hovering over the foothills west of my house on Arch St (just east of RR Canyon) but oddly not much smoke smell in the air.

    Lived here 42 years and it's amazing the first big fire we've had happened on some of the slowest wind days.

    I'm sure at this point most people are aware of this website, but just in case. It has been very helpful for us in the High Park Fire.

    Good luck down there.

    Werd...
    I feel like I need to pour some liquor to the curb or some sh$t...
    Fortunately after it's done the trail will still be there, just minus the greenery.

    Flying W

    They just dispatched multiple fire units into the foothill of Flying W Ranch. If the winds shift like they predict this afternoon it calling for winds out of the SW with gust up to 35. Hope all are safe.

    Sure hope some of the old growth survived in Lower Williams Canyon, that place is magical.

    Dam,

    I'm curious about that map too?

    Here's a pic I stole off of FB. Appears to be taken from the westside somewhere.

    I am not sure where the trail goes but it does look like the northern part of Williams Canyon is inside the boundaries of the fire according to this map.

    Bad situation for sure, hoping no loss of life or structure damage happens in this

    If you guys go here InciWeb the Incident Information System: Waldo Canyon Fire and click the "Fire Perimeter" link on right side it will take you to the map. You will need Google Earth installed to see it. The current link has yesterdays date but I am not sure about when it was last updated.
