A hidden factor in this is the potential impacts of global warming. If the


draughts continue, and temps rise, the recovery might take a different look and feel to them. It takes 5, 10, 20-40 years for these ecosystems to recover. Colorado might not have the great forests it is traditionally known for in the not so distant future. As our climate become more like New Mexico's regarding temps and seasons, we might lose/change a lot of what is the forest as we know it. It will always have the high altitudes, but those are more susceptible to change than lower climes. As snowfall, snowpack reduces, so will water. It's a cycle. The warmer ground temps, exposed to sun, combined with less precipitation and higher temps is a formula for desertification processes.
These fires are a symptom of a far greater issue. Throw in the fact that there's ten or hundred folds more humans living in these remote area's it leads to the destruction of property, and it effects on human lives. There are so many issues on the table with these events. Hopefully it will rain, snow, get cold soon. Stop this fire season...As of now, it seems like not a early, big winter like Colorado has had a few times recently...sigh.
