Forest Fire ahead!

While riding north and west of Helena, I came around a bend and noticed … a forest fire.  Those of you who where in Ketchum 3 years ago know what that experience can be like.

The conditions were hot, dry & windy – perfect for a fire to become large, fast. And apparently that’s what happened.  A controlled  burn got out of control. Before long there were road closures and evacuation orders going out for certain areas.

The CDR route headed straight for the blaze, so I looked for a route out of there.  But before doing that, I stopped by several homes to see if somebody might know what was going on and … there was nobody home.  It was kind of eery – like a Twilight Zone episode …
