Some of the healthier areas where the Hewlett Gulch fire just took the underbrush are already growing grass. In the areas where it had been repressed too long that burned through the canopy like near the mouth of Stove Prairie, the soil will be sterilized and it may take 20 years for much to re-grow as it did in the Black Tiger Fire on Sugarlaof outside of Boulder.
Mudslides may form new rapids. There was one blowout near Killer bridge that made it half way across the river about a foot deep. No affect on the rapid below, but it was a bigger event just like it that must have formed the rapid originally.
