High winds pushed the Sprague fire into Glacier National Park's historic Sperry Chalet Thursday, burning it down, according to InciWeb.

"A highly skilled group of firefighters were staged at the Sperry Chalet over the last week. ... The firefighters, supported by three helicopters, made a valiant stand to save the structure but were unsuccessful in saving the main Sperry Chalet," the national wildfire information service posted shortly after 7 p.m.

So many great memories, new friends, happy meals, goats running rampant....

I only hope they rebuild it as it was and not all fancied up.
