Kenow Fire, Waterton Sept 11,2017

Here a is a map of the fire in Waterton showing how it grew in 2 days.

This is what it was like in Leavitt on Monday Sept 11th. It was orange, spooky calm, one could see ash in the air, smell smoke, and it was very hazy. (I am using mostly Corynna Mullers photos for this, she takes great shots)

 These are Corynna's photos. I'll just let the pictures tell the story.

It will be interesting to see how this summer looks in Waterton. It was amazing how the firefighters worked on this. They saved the townsite. When I went up there you can see where the fire stops mere feet from the yards and homes of the town. They were able to save everything in town but the visitor centre (umm I wonder why? could it be they wanted to build a new one?) The golf course had some damage as you can see, the Apline Stables got burned down. It was a spooky thing to have happen in one of my favorite places in the whole world.
