Happy 4th of July, 2011

Thanks to all the firefighters and police personnel from Los Alamos and surrounding communities, the Type 1 Teams, NM National Guard, NM State Police, Los Alamos County workers, NM Red Cross, the Governor and the State of NM, our Congressional Delegation, and on and on. Special kudos to all the citizens of Los Alamos County to had to evacuate and those who contributed aid and comfort.  
A very special note to those who lost homes (on the southern edge of the fire) and to those to the north - especially Santa Clara Pueblo who have lost sacred ground and trees in this fire. [Fire Updates]
And firefighters from all over New Mexico and Arizona


  1. Just came to check in on you and how it's going there. Not the time for fireworks there for sure.
    I'm sure there will be lots of firework/4th pictures today but your's capture the meaning of the day in a special way.

  2. You've captured a quintessential slice of Independence Day in America..Happy Fourth!

  3. How about firefighters from across the nation. The crews working on the Las Conchas are not just NM and AZ crews. How about UT, WA, OR, ID, CA, and many more....
