The 7000 Word Post...

Well... they say a picture is worth a thousand words. So what we have here are seven pictures. :P Go ahead and click on them to see them in better detail.

Here's the fire that I was telling you about. This first pic is kinda what it looked like when we got there.

This next series is one where the fire is moving along a hillside up to some rimrocks. You'll notice that in the last one, there are some fire fighters above the rim.



These next two are an airplane dropping retardant, and what that retardant looks like once it hits the ground.


And finally... last but not least, is one specifically for KTM and PinTA. Yes ladies, that is an honest to goodness, real life actual sunrise.

You mean the sun comes from behind the horizon? Wow. It's usually just in the sky when I wake up. Nice and high. :P

I didn't make it, I just snapped the pic. :P

Yes ladies... I always look to educate the ignorant among us. ;)

Huh. So it doesn't start out right above me and then go down. Go figure.

Fire. Heh heh. Kewl.

And they dropped retardants from the airplane. That's not very nice. I hope they were wearing their helmets.

I was up before the sun this morning, but didn't mean to be. Test anxiety is an awful thing. My stomach feels like one of NYPinTA's shoeleather steaks is turning cartwheels in there, but I haven't had anything to eat all day. Two more days.....

Thank God they weren't retardelephants.

Well what did you expect? After all... it is a special plane.

"Thank God they weren't retardelephants."

I don't know about that. I'd pay good money to see someone drop retardelephants on a fire.

The last one is like an Ansel Adams or some such. I wish I could take pictures like that.

I have a pic of a sunrise but it has buildings and such monstrosities in front of it. The colors are really pretty though.

Just to give the girls another example of one.

Except it was a quickie pic taken with a cheapo camera by a novice photographer. The good thing about digitals is that you can take a lot of pics and pick the ones that look decent.

BTW, welcome to the End of the World, Scott, and nice moustache.

Buildings? Monstrosities? Nothing of the sort... Although it was a red sky in morning so I hope you took the appropriate warnings. Do you know what I've always found peculiar? I think cities are fascinating. Concrete overpasses, giant high rises and all that included. Do you know why? Because someone built them and that's impressive. To me, growing up where I did, mountains and vistas and views are just a "meh, it's only nature" kind of thing.

I thought that "red sky in morning" stuff only applied to sailors.

It also applies to those who swear like them too. :P

LL - There's a really cool highway overpass intersection (two actually). I'll try to take a pic for you.
