The Hayman Fire

We went for a drive tonight and got to see the 18 year old remains of the Hayman fire. It was Colorado’s largest wildfire in the state’s history and burned over 138,000 acres from June 8-July 18, 2002. Mark and I will never forget it raining ash the month we moved to Denver to begin art school back in 2002. All caused by a forest ranger burning a letter from her estranged husband.
