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
