Slideshow: High Park Fire Pictures From Buckhorn Mtn.

The transmitter site at Buckhorn Mtn. was threatened by the High Park Fire which started on Saturday. The fire quickly grew and swept the site, knocking out power. KUNC was knocked off the air and county communications moved to battery backup.

The site still remains without power. KUNC's engineering team received permission to visit Buckhorn Mtn. on June 12th. They brought back these pictures of the site and the surrounding area affected by the High Park Fire.

FYI - KUNC is currently on the air using a temporary low power signal. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge.

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
