August 2016 Lava Mountain fire burned over 14,000 acres, 1,400 firefighters & cost over $14M 

Every house on the ridge in the Crooked Creek Sub-Division should have burned BUT the firefighters saved them

Yes we had around $100k in damages BUT WestView is redone & better than ever

Upright Construction (Dave & Seth Case) from Riverton took on the huge task of putting WestView back together

There work is 'spot-on' & I would highly reccommend them  

Derrick from Rocky Mountain Painting did the stain & painting - another great job 

The workers busted their butts - hats off to a great professioanl company & work crew

Over 800 burned trees were dropped & cut up on the property

(from the ridge to the road on the north side by Johnson's) 

We will have a great 'winnie-roast' when the brush pile is burned

Grass seed is planted & just waiting for spring to germinate

The swing sits up on the ridge & is the perfect location for great mountain views & some of the best sunsets anywhere
