My third day at the helibase, fourth day of working on this fire. The heat was much lower today, only getting into the mid eighties. The other days it had been in the mid to upper nineties, and other crews had it as high as 107. While the heat and humidity went in favor of the firefighters, the wind changed direction and blew the smoke into the camp. It wasn’t as bad as when you’re working the lines, but you still noticed it in your throat and eyes. On the drive back home we saw our first visible sign of actual flames, as we could see the fire coming down the hill just behind Myers Flat. Since we have to be at the engine all day it was hard getting pictures of other things at the camp, but we were a bit early so I got some pictures of some of the other residents of the camp, some very tame deer and turkeys. The deer come in every morning to get handouts and will eat right out of your hand. Because of all of the prisoner crews that work the fires, the camp is posted as weapon free. I think the deer know this and use it to their advantage during hunting season.
