Sorry about the double post, it was up and looked like I didnt post it while I was closing some windows. Now it is not letting me delete the redundancy.

From the photos I've seen, there was a lot of wood construction mixed in with the tramway buildings, some even had shake shingles, so its not surprising that it burned and the cables collapsed into the gorge.

At least the bridge weathered the storm. Dodged a bullet there...

Upside is that of all of the tourist activities, rafting should make a quick comeback. Once the canyon is clear, all you need are boats and water
