There are fire fighters passing through Mount Shasta on their way to fires in Southern Oregon. I saw them last night and started remembering being one of them. Dennie and I hike to a memorial of a fire fighting victory. Don B and I stopped a fire before it consumed thousands of acres. The recent Delta Fire consumed what we saved. I wonder if the memorial plaque put up there survived. No one cares. Don died of cancer. I care.
