I agree, they are the best of the best, and still not to tired to smile.

Great capture Katy, it's one of those jobs that quickly builds character. Sadly 19 of their fellow firefighters died doing their job in Arizona.

I am amazed to see them smiling after a grueling day of fighting fires. It really says great things about their character. As you said they are all true heros.

I've lived in Alaska since 1969. I love this wild land. The extremes of the far north shape and affect every living thing. Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
