Wildfires and forest fires are part of nature's cycle. They can be beautiful, in a strange way, especially at night, but they are terrifying. I was on the front lines of The Las Conchas forest fire in my beloved Jemez Mountains for a week, where the entire town of Los Alamos was evacuated for the second time in ten years. It was one the most poignant and unforgettable times in my 40 year professional career.
