In 2016, Fort McMurray was the setting of massive wild fires.
As we got closer and closer to the town, we saw acres and acres of burn areas. It was really disconcerting. Originally, we had planned on going to Fort McMurray in 2016, but due to the cracked block issue on the IDI engine, we had to cut the WVO trip short at Churchill Manitoba.
After seeing the aftermath of the devastation, we were really lucky things turned out the way they did.
