The news of the Black Forest fire covering Colorado this past week is unfortunate for the families living in Colorado Springs and the surrounding area. While fire can be good for land, nearly 400 homes have been lost which means families are displaced and devastated as flames keep moving across the land.
Wilderness Ventures has always promoted family togetherness in the outdoors, and this type of event can make people very wary of being in nature when dangers like wildfires exist. We have taken several trips through the Rocky Mountain region and Colorado, and the area is beyond beautiful. Teens have faced their fears atop fourteeners and felt the cool splash of the Arkansas river for many years now so this area is very close to our hearts.
All the best to the families who are dealing with this terrible event.
