    So if anyone is planning a ride or camping this weekend near Red Feather Lakes be prepared for lots of smoke. Enough smoke to make your eyes water and throat tighten up. Kelly Flats should be closed, not sure but the FS road goes past our house and we have been evacuated since Wed. afternoon. Lots of fire personnel and deputies in the area, be careful and respectful.

    I rode the "Circle the Zirkel" loop today ........... Steamboat, Rabbit Ears Pass, Walden, Cowdrey, Riverside, Encampment, Battle Pass, Dixon, Savery, Baggs, Craig, Home. :ricky

    I don't know if it was all from that Red Feather Fire ............. but there was varying amounts of smoke for most of that ride. It was the worst around Cowdrey and State Line Ranch.
