Vail Fires – February 1999 – Colorado Central Magazine
Nothing like a nice warm fire
Actually, I think the title of Gretchen Biggs’ article should have been “Arson Isn’t All That Wrong On Vail Mountain” [December, 1998]. We are, after all, fighting Vail Associates and the US Forest Service, two of the most influential corporations in Colorado. In the case of the Forest Service we get to pay them to do something we don’t want them to do and have no real voice in the matter.
Nothing like a nice fire to warm the heart on a cold winter night!
