Wildfire Aftermath
Rob Carrigan climbs over piles of mud, rocks and other debris Tuesday morning, July 31, 2012, that was washed across highway 24 near Cascade, Colo. during Monday's heavy rains. Highway 24 through the area was closed for several hours Monday as heavy rains caused flash floods below areas burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire. In Colorado, insurers estimate that wildfires have caused some $450 million in damage to personal property, and that number is expected to grow. (AP Photo/The Colorado Springs Gazette, Mark Reis)
