Forest Fire Fighters lining up at the chow wagon


Back in 1974, Rick was stationed as a fire fighter with the California Division of Forestry (CDF) in Weott, CA.

Rick told me that this photo was taken on top of a mountain somewhere in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The fire fighting crew was brought to this location by helicopter. In this photo the men are lining up for chow. The “clouds” in the sky include lots of smoke from the fire as well.

This summer job went along with Rick’s college major, which was Natural Resources Management.
