That red and purple streak is smoke from the Bull Draw Fire behind us on the Uncompahgre Plateau
Here is what they are saying about the fire:
Good Morning Everyone! Starting today, Monday, October 1, 2018, we will no longer be updating the #BullDrawFire Facebook page unless something changes and new information becomes available.
Please contact Grand Valley Ranger District at 970-242-8211 with any questions you have about the Bull Draw Fire. You can also call (970) 874-6625 for recorded fire information for GMUG National Forest.
Thank you to everyone in the community for your patience and support these past two months. As you enjoy your National Forest, please be aware of the hazards in a recently burned area and please put your campfires OUT COLD.
The fire is 36,549 acres and 95% contained. Crews will remain engaged on the fire until a season-ending event occurs, meaning a large amount of precipitation, possibly snow.
