Sand Dunes fire

Erwin Young, our Colorado Gator Farm guy, sent along these photos from the wildfire, captured on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Great Sand Dunes National Park has not been affected.

Though the fire seems to be under control in the photo, reports say portions are still burning fairly rapidly.

And anyone driving on Interstate 25 around Walsenburg over the weekend could see the fire creeping over the tops of the Sangre de Cristos, making some of the peaks look almost like volcanoes.
