The Finished Collection

Johnny Wilson from Wilson Photography, Inc. is providing pen, paper, and a complimentary portrait to people throughout the community who wish to tell the story of their experience during the Waldo Canyon Fire or its aftermath.

The wide range of individual narratives will be compiled to preserve a unique collection of first-hand accounts of the firestorm. The finished collection will be of great historical value for the state of Colorado and will be viewed by future generations at various locations both locally and across the State.
