The Thursday Picture – Forest Service Smokejumper!

USFS Smokejumper

With so many wildfires raging throughout our National and State Forests here in California, I thought that I would post this picture of a Forest Service Smokejumper leaving a plane to go to work.  THANK YOU to all of our Federal, State and Local fire crews who are on the front lines today fighting fires!

This picture is taken from the USDA BLOG located here:
