A little sad as the YMCA was there for over 50 years and not even mentioned in the story except for a photograph from 1800s They built the camp and developed the lake. If it was not for their passion for the property it woul not be there today.

We love going to Bluff Lake and the Lodgepole Pine.... particularly when we have young children visiting. You can go out on an adventure that is very interesting for all ages and the children can handle it due to the short hike involved. We've parked at the place that has you going to the Lodgepole Pine first, then the lake.... and recently we parked at the opposite end of the lake than we usually see, and walked around the whole lake. You can see the very old cabins.... the public wasn't allowed to do the whole lake walk until a couple of years ago. We like to go in late spring/early summer the most so the lake is fairly full and the meadow by the Lodgepole is green. Fun to see tadpoles and polywogs in June last year... And we go in the morning.... there by 9 or 10 AM. Fun!

You're right it is green and gorgeous.

It was a hit and run with the fleeing male driver being injured in the first impact. He hit a number of other vehicles along the way in multiple locations. Ended up in custody and being transported for treatment.

It must have been quite a bad accident. The sirens were blaring for 20 minutes.

Razz, that is the one I meant. We were only looking at the flashing lights. Then got home and that fire is about 1/2 mile up our street from us. Glad we weren't home.

Airport Razz

When I went by, only 1 car left in center, going onto flatbed. lady sitting in EPL parking lot with a couple of dogs. Ambulances gone already. Someone has a bad headache from the condition of the windshield. No seatbelt maybe? And now a medical run around the corner. Anyone around me RUN!!!!!!!! lol. Or take me to Vegas and bet opposite what I do.

Fortunately Benny wasn't involved in either incident, just caught up in the aftermath. Seemed like my 'gremlin' had branched out there for a bit . Casa, the head-on was the one in front of El Polo Loco. Enough damage that there was some speed, and probably someone not paying attention.

Airport, was that head on by the school and Dr. Almarez'? We drove into Big 5 and it really looked bad. Had to be at least 10 minutes before the ambulances took off, two of them. Was looking for some follow up here too.

Rough afternoon. What looked to be a head-on in the center lane followed by a major structure fire. Time to go home and hide
