I’ m not sure what I was expecting but I was surprised by the terrain on this hike. As I stopped for a drink and to catch my breath, I couldn’t help but think of these Hotshots hiking this mountainous terrain, carrying 50lb packs, in addition to their tools, saws, etc in the Arizona summer heat...fighting an unpredictable wildfire. A humbling hike honoring the fallen nineteen.

Esse quam videri - To be, rather than to seem.
Motto of the Hotshots, speaks to who they were and their dedication.
