haven't posted any pictures in a loooong time. I went camping over thanksgiving in Big Basin Redwoods park. They were doing a controlled burn of the forest that the trail we were hiking through and we got to walk right up along the fire. it was pretty sweet. The first shots are unedited random pics of the forest fire. As a disclaimer, i was borrowing a friends camera, and he took pictures with it too. I'm 85% sure these are pictures i took, but one or two of them i couldn't tell you if they are mine or my friends...we both took some shots of almost the same thing. 1. it was a cold morning... i didnt take this one. im they guy in the red coat 2. making sure it doesn't spread...though im not sure what one ranger is going to do for that fire with only a rake.... 3. ray of light 4. 5. smoke in the forest 6. the waterfall at the end of the 12 mile hike. for an idea of the size, those trees in the photo have about a 5-8 foot diameter.
