Branford Bike Wildfire

At coffee this morning a friend described a photo essay on the website of Montana-based bicycle retailer Branford Bike. He visited the site to price some parts and discovered the business had been sold and moved to Seattle because a wildfire destroyed the owner’s house and shop. The photo essay and text document last summer’s fire and its aftermath. Each summer when I read about wildfires out west it is hard to comprehend their toll. Branford Bike’s owner escaped physically unhurt, and lost all of his possessions. You can imagine his feelings at the fire’s inexorable advance, and at what he finds when he returns after the fire has passed. You can click through the photo essay with the links at the bottom of this page: http://www.branfordbike.com/cgi-bin/perlshop/perlshop.cgi?ACTION=push&thispage=shop/shop01.html&ORDER_ID=190736745

  1. Hi, I think your blog might be having web browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping
    issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, great blog!

  2. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your
    favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think
    about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  3. You are so interesting! I don’t think I’ve read through a single
    thing like that before. So nice to find someone with a few genuine thoughts
    on this subject matter. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up.
    This site is one thing that is required on the web, someone with a little
    originality!
