Heavy rains and scarring from recent wildfires sent walls of water crashing down mountainsides early Thursday in Colorado, cutting off mountain towns. Boulder County was hit hardest, but flooding was reported all along the Front Range, from Colorado Springs to north of Fort Collins. (AP Photo/The Daily Camera, Paul Aiken)
