I was gassing up my car today at Fred Meyer on Federal.  I stopped and looked over at Table Rock and it just made me sad.  That's a very special place and it hurts to see it.

To know that it was fireworks and carelessness that caused such expansive damage to our beautiful foothills just makes me sad.  Yes, we've all made mistakes, but this was just a heartbreaking one.

This was around 2pm, and the Lucky Peak fire hadn't started yet.  It's my hope that this is the last of the fires in our foothills.  We live in such a beautiful place, and I look forward to the day when the vegetation returns.  I'm grateful to those groups who are working to make it happen.
