The Alkali Lake Forest Fire started on August 1st, 2018. By the night of August 5th, our home was completely surrounded by fire. Thankfully, all of our buildings were saved by Russell, his father Bill, and my father Bob, and many other people. We lost over 60 acres of forest on our 98 acre property. We are recovering, and in the process of cleaning up all of the burnt trees, and trying to find a ‘new normal’. Yes, our Bed and Breakfast is still open and we will be building a second cabin in the spring of 2019!
