Art from the ashes 

When Steve Weed returned home with his family after 10 days of Waldo Canyon Fire evacuation, he could have given in to negative feelings. Grief over the devastation in their Mountain Shadows neighborhood. Survivor's guilt that a random shift in the wind spared their home. Anger at the ruthlessness of nature.

  • The Waldo Canyon Fire goes from terror to muse for Steve Weed.
