    I just got back from riding Ginny up to the ridge. I wasn't even aware of the fire until I got down to the parking lot and a ranger started asking questions. They were taking information, both for "safety" and presumably to aid any future investigations. Passed lot's of wildfire crews on the way back to FC. The fire looked to be a few miles northwest of Bobcat on the other side of the ridge. There's nothing left to burn at Bobcat so we're not too worried about losing shade! The wind was brutal out there - this could be a tough one to control until the winds die down.

    The smoke was thick here in Ft.Collins for a hr or so, but has cleared out now. From town, that's about where I guessed the source to be.

    Updated 5:25pm, The Examiner Web Site - The situation with the fire is looking pretty good and things seem to be dying down. At the current time, Larimer County is not expecting to perform any further updated on the fire unless the situation changes for the worse. The U.S. Forest Service has reported the same. We will continue to monitor the fire and update this report as needed.


    Good thing too. I don't think the "trees" at Bobcat can take anymore.

    I wonder if the eagles are still hanging out? Does anyone know if their baby can fly yet?

    Even if they've started looking for a nest, they wouldn't have laid eggs yet, chick's will be much later.

    I was watching them fly around with my binoculars a few weeks ago, and they both came back to what I'm pretty sure was a nest. It seemed like they were tending to something as well but I guess not. When are they expected to lay their eggs?
