If You Can't Stand the Heat

If You Can’t Stand the Heat Bozeman, Montana 2012

I have an issue with my heart that precludes me from wearing an airpack when I participate as a  firefigher on the Bridger Canyon Volunteer Fire Department, so I am relegated to running the pump on the truck or other such activities. I miss out on a lot of the action that way but it does free me up to take photos sometimes. This one is from the training we were doing today in a burn trailer which is basically an all metal semi-trailer set up to be configured like a house in which you can repeatedly light fires and then go in and put them out. Here I was standing just inside the door while one of the fires was being lit. I got this shot just before ducking back outside, but not before the heat got a little intense and I lost a bit of  hair on my eyebrows and arms.]]>
