Please take a minute to look at these amazing photos of the hard working fire fighters getting the job done on Diablo. These are taken and shared with us by the fire fighters up there.
I can't explain how hot that mountain is, even when it's actually only in the 80's it feels so much hotter, and that is in running clothes, which are pretty minimal. I try to explain it here on the blog, but it's a heat that you have to experience to understand...it doesn't just come from the sun above, it radiates up from the ground. I can not imagine wearing what they wear and carrying all the gear they do, plus the weather being in the 90's, plus having the heat from the fire.
Really amazing, guys.
Thank you all so much for your hard work. This fire could have been much worse if not for all your hard work!
