The Desolation of Smaug Can't Post

We finally were able to drive up to see part of the area that burned in Rocky Mountain National Park. The fire is still burning; you can see smoke in the background in some of the shots. It's been burning since October 9. The ranger said it is burning under the snow; the snow falls on top of all the fallen logs, and the fire burns underneath. But they got it out in the meadow, and we were able to take some photos. The grass will come back in the spring, and many trees were spared, but others were burned. One cabin burned to the ground, and 600 people were evacuated.

You'll see a magpie in one photo. It was on the hood of our car, and tried to fly in our window. Here's a link to the photo album

Artistically, this is probably our best shot. I honestly don't know which of us took it; Uncle Baggins and I were handing the camera back and forth.
