The Fire Line

After our festivities today, Martha and I drove 10 miles up into the hills behind our house to LaCumbra peak and surveyed the Jesusita fire lines. After the Tea Fire last fall, we were used to seeing charred remains of hillsides. We were again sobered by the devastation of the fire and the clear lines of defense that the fire fighters established to limit the fire's progress. It was very much like looking at a battle-field.
