It was very smoky between Gunni and Lake City Sat. around 6PM -- however, neither Gunni or Lake City had much smoke. The worst area was just north of the Hinsdale County line in southern Gunnison County. SJ Ron

There are actually three fires in the Durango vicinity. The Weber fire, the Stateline Fire and the Little Sand Fire between Bayfield and Pagosa. Going to be a long summer...dryer than a popcorn fart.
