Interesting. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've seen photos of the Alluvial Fan in that area, looking pretty grim. Back in 1982 there was a huge flood there when a dam broke on a high mountain lake. It gouged out the mountainside and piled up there. Now, twenty years later, the trees are starting to come back. They didn't replace the dam, but I guess a lot of water came pouring down that channel anyway.

What makes me saddest is the Big Thompson canyon. It may be a long, long time before we're able to get up to the park again. It's a minor matter compared to all the suffering that's going on, but we used to go up almost every weekend, and it's hard not being able to.

I haven't seen anything about wildlife yet either. I suppose there may have been some casualties, but I would hope most of the critters were able to run to higher ground.
