2014 with the Vale Hotshots

South Steens Complex   |   Steens Mountains, Oregon   |   September 18 - 24, 2014

Moon Hill Prescribed Burn   |   Burns, Oregon   |   September 12 - 18, 2014

Deception Complex   |   Oak Ridge, Washington   |   August 25 - September 9, 2014

Located in the Willamette National Forest, this complex consisted of six different fires, which were all contained together in one "big box" and were allowed to burn within the containment lines.

Chiwaukum Complex   |   Leavenworth, Washington   |   August 9 - 22, 2014

We worked on the Hansel and Duncan fires, both a part of the Chiwaukum Complex. We received significant rain during this roll so we didn't see intense fire behavior, but there was still plenty of of work to be done.


Carlton Complex   |  Twisp, Washington   |  July 21 - August 5, 2014

We spent a full 14 days on this fire spread out over a few different divisions. The ground we worked was very steep and we had some big hikes. Even the salty dogs said it was one of the more physically demanding rolls.
