Summit Voice page views the past 30 days pretty much spanned the globe, with a few gaps in central Africa and Greenland.

FRISCO — Wildfire stories dominated the Summit Voice most-viewed list the past week, as readers from around the country watch Colorado’s tinder-dry forests go up in smoke. But a great photo essay by Jenney Coberly documenting the quick rise of Dillon Reservoir made it onto second place as the only other story to crack 1,000 views.

Coverage of Colorado River and water issues continued with an interesting look at some alternatives for overall management of the river that could help avoid the dreaded “compact call.” when Lower Basin states would demand their share of the river’s water, potentially leaving some Upper Basin users high and dry.
