      Wow, diana I didnt know you lived in south Fork. We are glad the town was saved...but it is hard to see the forests you love charred and dead. We, like so many others on this list, have been living with fires way too often in The last few years. Our NM forests are probably not going to recover in many areas ever due to climate change. Its sad. Glad you guys are safe.

It is great to be home, smoky at times and will be sad/interesting to see the condition of some of our favorite trails once the fire is contained and we can get back into the forest. We’ll be witnesses to the post-fire regrowth process but I know some of my favorite runs are forever changed. The fire fighters have done amazing work, they put in a perimeter around the town and kept everyone’s house safe. It is strange to see a Red Cross Disaster Relief trailer here in South Fork. It is quiet here, most of the Texans (who spend the summers here) have stayed away so today we saw more helicopters flying overhead than cars.
