When we woke the first morning after evacuating to Woodland Park, we learned that Manitou Springs had been evacuated during the night. I didn’t take this picture, but I can tell you in posting it that this is the same road I traveled home the day before, wondering where the tall thin plume I saw was coming from. Cascade is five miles up the highway in the direction of this smoke.

It’s beginning to dawn on us that this might not be a short-term, temporary displacement.
