Tim and Madison Jusko of San Antonio set up camp Wednesday in the recently opened Lower Hermosa Campground. In 2018, the 416 Fire burned up to the road behind them. “We tried to camp here last summer, but it was closed due to the fire,” Tim Jusko said.
Gambel oak is growing in the burn area a year after the 416 Fire northwest of Hermosa.
