The Mt. Yoran hike had great weather, huckleberries and views.
The extra added attraction was a just started forest fire.
At the trailhead we heard a helicopter and then we saw smoke.
For the rest of the day as we hiked, we saw this helicopter go
from Notch Lake to the fire with his water bag.
I didn’t read about this blaze in the newspaper, so they
put it out.
The process and the amount of time it took, they were still dumping
water on it as we drove off, was amazing.
