Today's update shows the entire Brewster Creek watershed is now closed. A large area on the Alberta side of the divide. I guess Parks are preparing in case the fire crosses over the divide. This is an important point, since if the fire establishes in Brewster Creek that would provide a direct path through to the Bow Valley. On the plus side there is a substantial trail up Brewster Creek - I wonder just how quick Parks would plough a road up there to form fire breaks - I bet that would be damn quick!
