Waldo Canyon, as it once was

Before it was the name of Colorado's second-most destructive wildfire, Waldo Canyon was a popular 7-mile hiking and biking trail between Cascade and Manitou Springs, known for its sweeping views of Pikes Peak and Williams Canyon.

11 News anchor Don Ward frequented the trail before the 2012 fire rendered it off limits. Below are photos he took between 2009-2012.
