The Heat Is On

While places like Texas bail themselves out of biblical storms, temperatures along the Continental Divide Trail continue to break all-time heat records. It's tinder dry in the mountains.

Last weekend, we reported on the Fool Creek Fire. Now, there's a second fire (Ahorn Fire) burning its way just south of the CDT. Jim Jakicic of Rupert, ID is sending us and his teammates daily reports. During the week of August 6, Jim along with four others on Team MT50a (nicknamed the Continental Dream Team) plan to scout a section of the CDT near where this blaze is burning (see big map of area).

As of reports on Friday, the Ahorn Fire was estimated at 600 acres and was 50% contained.

Meanwhile, the Fool Creek Fire has grown to more than 4,000 acres with no lull in sight. Team leaders have been notified and we'll be discussing options in conference calls later this week.
