    Quick post, I’ll elaborate later, but I’m in my first week at The Denver Post, and yesterday I was sent out to shoot the first-ever evacuations within city limits of Colorado Springs.

    The Hubbard Family was nice enough to allow me into their home as they evacuated from a voluntary evacuation…

    Absolutely chilling.

  3. If I’d known Jessica in real life, I bet we would’ve been great friends. Writing this was difficult to say the least.

    Rest in peace, Jessica.

    In Focus: The Terrifying, ‘Epic’ Wildfire in Colorado

    Colorado Springs Fire Chief Rich Brown described the blaze as “a fire of epic proportions,” as tens of thousands of Colorado residents and tourists have been evacuated ahead of the growing, potentially disastrous Waldo Canyon fire. This fire joins several others across the state, including the High Park fire, which has consumed nearly 90,000 acres since June 9. While no reports of deaths or injuries have surfaced, hundreds of homes have been destroyed, with many more threatened. Fire crews are doing their best to contain the fires and save what homes they can, as authorities urged residents to flee affected areas.

    My heart goes out to (hell, it never really left) Colorado.
