The Buffalo Creek Fire did produce an amazing smoke column when it flared up that spring/summer of 1996. I remember it distinctly because of the way it was pluming over the crest of the Rampart Range just as my high school graduation at Fiddler's Green was finishing up. In a way, it was quite fitting given the fact that the fire completely torched Top of the World and a lot of the other places that my friends and I hung out and came of age. Thanks for posting this, Allen.

Buffalo Creek fire from Lake Wellington. Wild day to be on the Castle as the fire grew and grew.
