Deng Meirong's knees grew weak as she walked up the scenic path high above her hometown. Fallen boulders were everywhere. The air smelled of disinfectant. Then, hundreds of feet below, the remains of Beichuan came into view. Deng, 22, looked for the middle school she had attended but could see only a slope of dirt and rocks.
