Even though we posted the excellent photo above of the Aspen Fire in our main article about the fire HERE, we wanted to place it here as well, in case you are not keeping up with that fire — which is in California 16 miles south of Yosemite National Park and 5 miles northwest of Huntington Lake. Click the photo to see a larger version. The photo, which we believe is looking toward the northeast, shows Mammoth Pool Reservoir and the steep terrain the firefighters are working in.
The photos below, of a Sikorsky helicopter dropping water and retardant, were also taken on the Aspen Fire. Bob Martinez, a Volunteer in Prevention Photographer for CAL FIRE/Fresno County Fire, took them from Stump Springs Road July 26, 2013.
