21  Pine Creek Fire aftermath
21 Pine Creek Fire aftermath

In hot weather in August 2012, a man used a digger to clear out roots and rocks from a piece of land in Pine Creek, southern Montana.  The digger's scoop scraped on a rock, causing sparks, and in the course of the next few days a resulting fire burned most of the community of Pine Creek and raced up nearby tree-covered mountains.  A month later in snow it was a starkly photogenic sight, though local farmers reminded us that they now have to look at this desolate view every day for the rest of their lives.
