Yesterday I hiked to Blue Lake Pass in the Roosevelt NF and Rawah Wilderness. This area was thoroughly burned in the Cameron Peak Fire of 2020, the largest wildfire in CO history... something like 208,000 acres. It was very different from anything I had ever experienced. The burned area stretched from just a little beyond the TH parking lot to about a mile from the lake (total of 4 miles of burn). From there on, the area was basically untouched including the area around the lake to the alpine zone (about another 1.5 miles or so). There were no signs of life in the burned area save for the occasional chipmunk. No birds were to be seen nor heard. Near the lake I did run across two moose, including a large bull. Too close!! Altitudes range from approx 9500 ft at TH to 11000 ft at the pass. Here are a few pics.
