Marshall Fire

January 2023

A little over a year ago, the Colorado Marshall Fire devastated Superior and Louisville. I can remember that day clearly. We were out on a family hike at Chautauqua Park. Struggling against the crazy 100 mph winds, we climbed up the trail. I know. Why were we even outside? From that vantage point, we saw that the little fire we had passed while on US 36 had gotten bigger. And then our eyes widened as we saw it jump over the highway. Driving home, we were re-routed to Highway 128. It took over two hours to get home. At one point, we saw someone in an SUV hurriedly drive east into Superior using the deserted westbound lane. All the while, the winds did not let up. It’s heartbreaking to think of the magnitude of damage and sorrow this one day caused to so many people.
