Sunflower Fire

I was camping up in the mountains over the weekend of May, 16, 2004, and shortly after coming home that Sunday, a fire broke out near Sunflower, AZ, (about halfway between Phoenix, AZ and Rye, AZ) on Highway 87, along the route that I had taken home. I had to go back up to the mountains the next day, so I stopped and took a few photos of the fire that threatened the small community. Fortunately the winds were blowing the fire away from the houses and up the side of the mountain. I also got photos of one of the helicopters that were dumping water on the fire. That is one big helicopter!
