Royal Gorge Fire

Y'all are usually more informed on this stuff than most folks I know, but in case anyone is looking for a link regarding river traffic, here's what the State AHRA is posting on their Facebook page:

That's a good point. I've cut and pasted this (they posted it 18 hours ago, so it may have changed, but they don't have a new post up, yet):

Highway 50 from Skyline Drive to Parkdale is now closed 1500 hours 6/11/2013. We are trying to keep up with conditions to assist the public and locals in manuevering around the fire area.

I saw a report that 2 buildings at the Gorge tourist site have burned and tram cables have fallen into the river, it may be a while after the fire is out before the Gorge is boatable again.

Tram cables giving way due to a fire? That doesn't seem right.

Here is what is posted at Royal Gorge Anglers 6/12/2013


Currently US HWY 50 is closed at 1st St. Bridge up to HWY 9 due to the encroaching fire line.

The post I saw was this: "The Theater and a lodge have burned.
Also, they are saying that the cables from the tram have fallen into the gorge. This could potentially keep boaters and the train out of the gorge for a while, even when the fire is contained and put out."

Is it possible the towers melted or bent over in the heat?
