The explosion ...

Here's a photo I took of one of Montana's more dramatic events in 2009: the explosion and fire that destroyed half a block of downtown Bozeman last March. The blast killed a person, destroyed four lovely old historic buildings, and traumatized the community in a way that few events have.

This photo shows the remains of the infamous Rocking R Bar, which had been a second home to generations of Bozeman college students. Two days after the explosion, and the ruins are still smoldering.

More on this in tomorrow's post.
