Colorado News: Saint Catherine Chapel

I saw a report on the news today that the conference center at the Catholic retreat at Saint Malo behind the Saint Catherine Chapel on Rt 7 in Colorado near Rocky Mountain National Park burned down today. Apparently, the fire did not impact the chapel. It is a great photo location, with Mt Meeker in the background. In most of my images at this location, I used the chapel to hide the conference center. This image is from December 2007, not today. I also saw a weather report that the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains had a significant wind storm, with winds up to 90 mph. I assume the high winds impacted the fire.
