Inlow Campus following the fire

Aspen Cabin - point protection crews removed some brush around the cabin.

There is now a bulldozer line and backburn just behind Chapel.

Manager's house - firewood stacks were spread out throughout the front yard and fuel cans were moved from beside the house to the sidewalk. Sprinklers were left on continuously. As we were involved in evacuating the campers, we didn't get a chance to do any work preparing our house or packing personal items. A fire crew member was kind enough to close our windows so that the smoke damage was minimal.

The back burn is evident just behind the shop and Chapel. Inlow Lodge sustained no damage and remains the oldest building on the property.

This is the Inlow sign just inside the white gate. the fire did cross this fence line, but only burned about 25 yards inside the property.

Inlow's new gate operators and keypads still work and remain undamaged.

The land between the green and white gates was burned. This property Forest Service land under easement for road access to Inlow.

A large rock removed during the road improvements of 2007 remains unscorched. It's located on the outside of the second hairpin turn after entering the lower gate coming to Inlow.

As Ron followed the escort into Inlow on June 27, many fire vehicles could be seen spread thoughout the forest.
