Hilda's story

The photo above is the aftermath of a forest fire in Montana. Why have I posted a picture of a burned forest? Because my friend Betsy has a couple of fascinating family history blogs that I think you should check out, and she just posted her grandmother's account of traveling through the Montana mountains during a fire. It's written, as Betsy says, in a prosaic style, but the experience it describes must have been pretty harrowing. Read it here.
