    Got back from Nevada early this morning. I have been up since 5am yesterday. Had to take the long way home, direct route closed due to, you guessed it, fires.

    Driving chase truck for the guy standing on the Soft Track. This was Friday.

    It's been a monster fire season with no end in sight. Here's a few of mine.

    Early season fire assignment to Colorado. Lightning strike hit this big pondo. We got the fire out and it was still standing when we left.

    Perry fire, West side of Pyramid Lake. Hitting it with the Super Scooper. The water drop just split the head of the fire and it grew right back together.

    Perry Fire. Our position is no longer defensible, time to leave. Took less than 60 seconds for the fire to make it to where the engine had been and blow over the highway like it wasn't even there.

    Initial attack on the Perry fire. The small light in the lower right corner is my engine. Gives some scale to the size of it.

    These guys punched in some hand line and then fired it off to keep the main fire from pushing down hill. Worked great. Compare the last guy down the line to the flames. Flame heights were easily 30-40 ft.

    Eastern Nevada. The fire was pushing hard towards this place and the owner (75 year old lady) wouldn't leave without her babies
    (two horses). Had to get the sheriff involved and promised I would stay as long as possible and open the corral if we had to leave. Wind shifted and everything turned out ok.

    I've had three days off in the last 45 days. I can't wait for winter!

    I feel for you, can't imagine 45 days, 6 seemed like an eternity. Those are some amazing shots and I can surely relate. Fighting fires isn't for pussies, that's for sure.

    To the rest of you, if you have ever had to get in the 'black', you know what I mean.

    My daughter and I floated the Snake River yesterday from Conant to Eagle, she guided (rowed) the trip, all I had to do was relax and take photos.







    Charlie had a blast...






    Lots of eagles, saw a dozen or more....




    Look who I found!

    The Rexburg taco bus is worth the stop, other than that, not stopping is a good call.

    Along the way...


    And bullets.
