Oregon grieves for natural places wiped out by wildfires
Oregonians are grieving the loss of some of their most treasured natural places after wildfires wiped out campgrounds, hot springs and wooded retreats that have been touchstones for generations in a state known for its unspoiled beauty. The flames that destroyed hundreds of homes and killed at least nine people also encroached on beloved state parks, scorched some of Oregon's best-known hiking trails and raged through a whitewater rafting mecca. A forest center built on the ruins of an old mining town that hosted thousands of Oregon children was largely reduced to ashes.
