June gave us a bit of a scare but our brave firefighters and Rocky Mountain IMT - 1 Command has done an amazing job. It was an honor to watch them work.
Purgatory has slated June 30 to re-open activities right at the resort.
The forest in and around the Purgatory area is just as pristine as always. Some intermittent burn areas can be seen from the highway south of Electra Lake Road but other than that, one would hardly know there was a fire. Most of the burn was on the west side of Hermosa Cliffs to the west and south of the resort.
Lake fishing is excellent as well. Air quality is good to excellent. Some smoke wafts in from about 1pm to 4pm and then blows up and north and out of the area. I live across the highway from the resort and chose to stay simply because the air quality was so much better here than in Durango.
We encourage our visitors this summer to experience what our neighbors to the north have to offer. Ouray has a wonderful hot springs in an adorable setting with quality shops and galleries and fine restaurants. Silverton has mine tours, jeep tours, hiking and history in a rustic setting. Tourism will be slow so visitors will get more personalized attention in a quieter venue.
