Grizzly Creek Fire Map

Updated 8/19 at 11:45 pm MST

I do a lot of online mapping for morel hunters: mapping burn perimeters for mushroom hunters each year. This map shows the 8/18 lines in blue and the 8/19 lines in red. You can clearly see the team is doing an exceptional job at keeping this fire contained!  

The basemap can be changed by clicking on the buttons (Map (can toggle topo by clicking terrain)/Satellite/USFS/USGS). You can toggle full screen by clicking the square frame icon top right (esc to go back to regular screen).

    Thank you for this. It is just the information I have been looking for.

    Where do I find out what the colored lines mean? Purple, red, blue, yellow….etc

    • Trent Blizzard

      The colored lines are each day’s perimeter – Yellow (8/12), White (8/13), Blue (8-14), Red (8-15), Green (8-16). Note… they are often measured the night before. Thus, 8/16 is measured from 7PM on 8/15. So, each day shows the previous days growth.

    Thank you, Trent. This is very helpful. I let the Sopris Sun know about it. I think editor Will Grandbois was actually looking for a progression map.
