These are the videos I took on 6/13 and most of this area has now been affected by the fire. You can see the Kelly Flats bridge to the campground over the river, the dirt road in the distance is the Pingree Park road, and the mountain with the granite scar is Mt.McConnell. All of these were taken from the North and West of the fire facing South.

Heres a link to my photobucket! We were actually out on Old Flowers Road the morning of the fire. Got some decent pics and a neat little video of a sky crane heli dropping down in front of us to fill up with water. The first of these were taken at about 10:30, you can see where we topped over Rist Canyon road and got some pics there on the way down. The fire was so small. Then towards the end of Old Flowers looking back behind us, that thing was huge!!! Check em out here. You will have to click on the actual video to see it, if you view it as a slideshow it skips the video.

They have closed 74E to support evacuation of the Glacier View subdivisions between the river and Red Feather Lakes road. It'll only get worse today with 100* temps and a SW wind
