Backpacker - - SAFETY -

You ex­pe­ri­ence the wilder­ness dif­fer­ently as a fire­fighter. Where hik­ers might be able to lay in a meadow and bask in their sur­round­ings, fire­fight­ers spend long shifts swing­ing tools with their heads down. That, how­ever, leads to mo­ments when you look up and are bowled over by what you see. Such was the case fight­ing a 6,000-acre grass fire in the rolling hills of Ore­gon’s Columbia River Gorge.
