Glacier National Park’s favorite backcountry respite house, The Sperry Chalet is no more. The Sprague fire quickly engulfed the 100+ year-old structure after wind caused a run that could not be suppressed by fire fighting efforts.
Officials had previously doused the structure in water, added fireproof wrapping to its perimeter, and fought side by side to save the backcountry chalet. Those efforts proved no match for nature’s might. Check out the following photos and video courtesy of Glacier National Park…
