Phantom Canyon, June 24, 2012

The Waldo Fire Canyon burned out of control on June 24, 2012. Highway 24, the main (only) route west from Colorado Springs, was closed for firefighting access.

Naturally, that day, a Sunday, was the one I chose to return from a trip further west. Without many options, I detoured through Cripple Creek, then headed south toward Canon City via Phantom Canyon. This route was described by a local police officer on the radio that day as "an adventure."

The first pictures are near/of Victor, Colorado, the last few from near Canon City.

Some of the pictures are a bit blurry. I just post what I took and don't edit them to get the "best." These are my shots, in total.

I hope you enjoy them!
