On a Saturday afternoon in June 2012, a huge smoke plume appeared just west of Colorado Springs. Days later, thousands of acres scorched and hundreds of homes left in ashes, the community emerged forever changed -- and forever stronger. Five years later, we're looking back: at the heroism, at the resilience, at how far we've come. But this isn't our story -- it's yours. This webpage is intended to give everyone affected by the Waldo Canyon Fire a place to look back, to share memories and photos and to talk with others.

New 6/26/17: You can now watch our Waldo Canyon documentary special "Trial By Fire" in our videoplayer below!
