That pink stuff is still on the rocks of a ridge they bombed 4 years ago Jim.
You haven't seen any crazy flying until you watch the helicopters drop down into a narrow canyon to fill their bags or belly tanks Sue.
The fire started in a small blind canyon, it was amazing to watch the tankers swoop down from the high end of the canyon drop their load and only be a couple of hundred feet off the ground.
The fires contained, no one was hurt and no buildings were destroyed.
I was a Forest Service firefighter between High School and College.
There is no more difficult or hazardous job than being a firefighter.
They don't get the credit they deserve.
