A wildfire has recently blazed through. CMarie's friend is dismayed: her beautiful wilderness, destroyed. But CMarie quietly finds this recent ruin beautiful. And she wonders if maybe fire has something to teach us about beauty.

This episode takes place on Cheyenne, Ute, Eastern Shoshone, and Arapahoe homelands.
