FYI if anyone's planning on heading up that way in the next couple of hours:

@LarimerSheriff: Highway 14 is being shut down due to mudslides at Poudre Park. No details at this time.


Edit: Also -- The slide is between mile marker 91 and 92.

Man, that sucks, I hope everyone up there is OK. It would really suck to dodge a bullet with the fire just to have a mudslide come along afterwards.
The mountains - whose summits reach or exceed arbitrary thresholds for elevation and prominence - are calling and I must go.

I suppose we knew this was coming. Lots of rain up this way
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin
