Trout Lake, Wa has been home for nearly a month to a large Fire Camp and Helitack crew, during the Cascade Creek Fire on Mount Adams, with several Helicopters coming and going. My brother’s house is right behind the airstrip which lodges the Helitack camp, and I enjoy watching these birds of the air coming and going. To us, the noise of the machines is simply telling us we are safe from that fire burning 8 + miles away.
During the Salt Spring Fire of (2005?), the Cold Springs Fire of 2008, the Crofton Ridge Fire of 2009, and now this one in 2012 there were many different Helicopters coming and going. This is a sampling of some of them, and I have many more shots I simply have not gotten around to processing. enjoy!
