There is a very large fire north of Durango Colo. at the moment.

The TV news reported that US 550 is affected (closed) now and they said it may be closed until June 30.
That long a closure is likely a mistake but it serves as a warning that moving around the West this year might be affected by fires.

S. Colo and NM have had hardly any moisture this Spring and are prime for more huge fires.

When doing trip planning one would be well advised to have a Plan B and a Plan C and find ways to stay advised of closures.
