The glory of firefighting

Taking a burning tree down is something of glory and thrills; satisfying to say the least.

My buddy Jeff and I took turns pounding wedges in the back cut on this burning snag near Hermosa Creek. After putting in a face cut and back cut, every time we'd pound a wedge this snag would flare up and send a ball of fire out towards us.
