Jul 30, 2018

Drought is causing problems for Colorado anglers, ranchers, and recreationists. Brent Gardner-Smith, editor of Aspen Journalism, covered meetings in Glenwood Springs this month of water officials from around the state.

The Lake Christine Fire, one of many around Colorado this summer, has burned over 12,000 acres on Basalt Mountain. Severe drought conditions have made wildfires worse.
