"September 2011, I returned during the biggest wildfire Bastrop County had ever seen, instigated by yet another drought. The fire burned 50 square miles and consumed 1,600 homes and was declared a National Disaster. Nothing was left alive; it was like being on a very quiet and mono-toned planet. Experts predict the present course of climate change will eventually turn this area of Texas into a desert."
