NOT trying to make light of a serious subject, but (sometimes) it helps if you look at the glass as being HALF FULL ..

Thanks. This is exactly what I was hoping to find. Based on what I see, it looks as though the Jemez Falls area was not affected. That is a real bummer about Bandelier though. That was one of my favorite parts of New Mexico. On the bright side, at least Los Alamos probably won't have to deal with another fire for a while.
