40 Days of Fire and Ice - Week 3

Not a lot of things are on fire or frozen this week (yay!), so we have some pictures from the archives.

not a great place or time of year to be handicapped...
thankfully, this is mostly melted away now.

Snowy day in the hills (January 2019)
I love these black-and-white "branchscapes."
Could make a killer jigsaw puzzle.


frosty day in the clouds (early winter 2018)

"Lampwork" artist in Coos Bay, OR last winter.

Hour 20 of a 28-hour shift,
day 15 of our strike team "week."
Our task force leader stomping out a sagebrush fire.

scouting firewood sources.  Fall 2018

on way to Kettle Falls for Boyd's Fire (Aug 2018).

Finally, a challenge: Can you guess what this is? 

(Yes, we encountered it on a fire assignment.
It's a close-up of something.
Good luck.)
