Fire on the Mountain
Smokejumpers, an elite group of firefighters, are a quick response unit. They will parachute into a remote wilderness area and extinguish the blaze before it gets going. Smokejumpers have been around almost as long as aviation, established in 1939 in the US….and were the model for the 101st Airborne Division. One of the original Smokejumping camps in Winthrop Washington is not far from this location.
