I am hearing that some of you are cancelling your reservations at Bruce Spruce due to the West Fork Fire. Please reconsider! We have been here since June 22 (Saturday) when the danger was imminent. To the point that folks in Pagosa were telling us that Bruce Spruce was already evacuated! Not true - but there were some BIG mixups, let me tell you!
We now are leaving tomorrow morning (planned). Cannot give enough praise to the Forest Service, Firefighters, National Guard and all others who have not only protected us but also installed a perimeter sprinkler around all the cabins, cut and cleared a 50-foot firebreak (LOTS of BIG trees coming down) and kept us informed while working like crazy!! While there is still a small fire risk, it is VERY small...
While this was a very different vacation, we could not imagine NOT coming - and were enriched for the experience. Thanks to Rusty, Bridgette, Brielle, Brooke, Craig, Eugenia, Chris and Skeeter - You are brave!!
I know this is long but it 9:40 on Friday nite - All I really wanted to say is "Don't Stay Home!!"
