Yosemite Meadow Fire: The Sequel

Oct 4th 2014 — Yosemite — 8:25 am

I have a huge amount of respect for the pilots whose job it is to fly a helicopter full of water through narrow canyons and get as close to a tower of smoke and flames as they can before dropping their cargo.

One thing that has resonated with me since I’ve been living in California is how huge of an operation fighting wildfires is. The ground aspect of fighting this fire involved sending several hundred firefighters up the Mist Trail to work and camp in LYV in the ensuing days.

Also, when you look at the pictures of the flames shooting over the tops of those trees remember that most of those trees are probably 100ft tall, at least.
