I need prayers for my Dad

Who was evacuated last night from the High Park fire in Larimer county here in Colorado.  He and his neighbors' 30 horses were some of the last people out of Davis Ranch area at 11:30 last night.

This is the latest map.

Today, his valley is ringed by the fire, which keeps whipping back and forth over previously burned areas because of wind.

So far, from all recent maps, it looks like his area has not been burned, but the fire is estimated at over 14,000 acres, and is running wild, there is 0% containment.

We're just hoping that my Dad's home, and his neighbors' houses are spared.

Remember, it's just a ride.


  1. Oh wow, you got it. I'm no stranger to ranches and encroaching fires here in Idaho. And i'm a Colorado native- wishing him all the best. Stressful! Boo!

  2. His family, home and horses are in my prayers.

  3. Oh, that's just terrifying. Though a property loss would be devastating, I'm glad he and his horses got out before any lives were lost. I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers. ♥

  4. Yikes! Happy thoughts and prayers sent his way! At least he AND the horses are safe, though.
