Firefighter Tribute

Signs near Echo Summit honor fallen firefighter Mikey Hallenbeck,
Mountain Democrat, October 20, 2017.

The Gordian Knot of drought, radical climate change, irresponsible development, and tradegy are putting all of us at risk, but especially wildland firefighters.

Hallenbeck was killed by one of the hundred millions of climate change, drought-killed dead standing trees in the Tahoe Basin while fire fighting near Echo Summit.
