i read ‘Fire on the Mountain’ a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much. it was my introduction into the world of wildland firefighting, plus the stories my FF hub told me. not too long after both me and my FF hub read the book, we hiked to the memorials of the south canyon fire near glenwood springs, co, and i noticed something different about my man. he had very strong feelings about what happened to these firefighters. it is an intense experience when you hike up where most of the memorials are (very steep) and you can almost have an image of that day. i definitely recommend doing this hike after reading the book.
