Poudre Canyon and fire

I hadn't seen a thread started on this topic, and most of the news stories don't give much specifics. Anyone up that way know what Poudre Canyon's status is? Is Mishawaka going to make it? Hope everyone's homes are ok.

Got this link from the Colorodoan. Hope it works. Looks like fire jumped the river in a couple of spots (i.e. Pineview). Also looks like the fire is up to/or close to the river's edge in a lot of places (i.e. Bridges put-in, Lower Mish).

It looks better in satellite mode.

Another pretty recent map. Some pictures have been posted of the river corridor, some of which show the fire burning down towards the Middle Narrows.

A few days ago I saw a map showing the fire jumped the river at Poudre Park. How are the houses there?

I just got down from Poudre Park. We spent the night up there and saw numerous spot fires on the South side of the river. Poudre Park itself (we did not inspect any side streets) along the river looked pretty good. The firehouse, all of the houses around it, the Columbine Lodge, and all the houses on the north side of the road along the river seemed to be fine. We couldn’t inspect everything, as we were in a hurry, but what we saw from the river was hopeful and surprisingly green through much of Poudre Park. We did see a burned garage next to a saved house in the lowest part of Poudre Park. The house opposite the road and upstream mile (where Jamie Jazinski used to live) seems to be in tact.

If anyone knows Becky and Roger from Colombine Lodge, please tell them that in addition to their property being apparently unharmed there are absolutely no signs of looting. Everything looks secure and untouched.
From Hewlett Gulch down the canyon there is more green than black it seemed. Picnic Rock saw a destroyed home and a lot of burn, but the parking lot and its structures survived, I think.
We have not been above Hewlett, but will report and post more when we get up there. I’m running the raft team for the incident and am not in the canyon illegally, so please hold back any calls to the authorities. That said, I’d rather keep these photos among the residents and out of the press in general, but please share them in whatever way seems to be the most effective to letting people know the status of their homes.
I’m going to follow this by posting as many pictures as I can. You can contact me by private message and please understand if I don’t get back to you right away, I have to sleep some and will be back up there again tonight.
