Beichuan, Sichuan Province, China, May 11, 2009--Former residents of the town of Beichuan, located near the epicenter of the May 12, 2008, earthquake, commemorate their loved ones by burning paper offerings.

Although closed since its demolition by the magnitude-8.0 temblor, the government allowed residents to return to Beichuan for the quake's one-year anniversary.
