Pioneer Pass Fire

So most of you know that there's been a fire burning on the Pinal Mtns in Pioneer Pass for the last 2 weeks or so. Last Monday, Randall and I took the kiddies out to Cutter Airport (the one across from the Casino) to see the Air Crane tankers they've been using to fight the fire. What a great time it turned out to be! We walked out along the fence just to look, and the guys invited us inside to come and tour the helicopters and all sorts of fun. Dallin got to sit in the cockpits of both copters (Sukorsky - sp?! - Air Cranes, former military choppers the 3rd largest in the world - HUGE), and the guys were great! We came home with stickers and pins and even a couple of hats! Thank you Firefighters!! (We also took out out new digital camcorder, but I haven't taken the time to learn how to pull the video off the camera yet, and most of it's on there. Maybe later... tee hee!)
