DILLON, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper is in the mountains to learn about suppressing wildfires.

Hickenlooper planned to visit forests around Dillon in Summit County Wednesday to learn about efforts to clear dead wood in forests damages heavily by bark beetles.

The governor has other events planned in the mountains. After his wildfire tour, Hickenlooper heads to the Buena Vista Correctional Facility. Then he plans a town hall-style meeting in Breckenridge and a trip to Avon to address the Vail Valley Rotary Club.

Hickenlooper plans to visit Glenwood Springs and Minturn on Thursday.
