Reunited

My old crew and my new crew run into each other on a remote fire in southern New Mexico. It's rare for Hotshot crews to work together directly, usually each takes its own section and they leapfrog each other, but the nature of this grass fire made that impossible. So the crews basically fused together and became a 40-man firefighting machine for a few hours. In this photo, we're watching as a pulse of strong wind carries the fire up a hillside in seconds.
