Mountain Shadows dwellers set focus on flood protection

Gail Estes, whose Mountain Shadows home burned down in the Waldo Canyon Fire, helps spread mulch Friday, Aug. 10, 2012, at The Flying W Ranch. "Helping felt like a good thing to do," said Estes. About 50 volunteers were working with the Coalition for the Upper South Plate to mitigate flooding after the Waldo Canyon Fire. (The Gazette, Christian Murdock)
