2008 - FIRE AT KULIK LAKE, ALASKA
Thirty knot winds prevented eight Alaska Smokejumpers from jumping to a small wildfire burning near Kulik Lake in Katmai National Park. Feeling sorry for ourselves, our Casa Jumpship landed and we humbly crawled from our jumpsuits in frigid temperatures. After putting the fire out early the next morning, we hiked to "Angler's Paradise" - Kulik Lake & Lodge. Even the most photo-elusive subjects gleefully posed with their many catches.
