Brins Mesa Fire – This fire burned 4,317 acres (17 km) on Brins Mesa, Wilson Mountain and in Oak Creek Canyon in June 2006. Fighting the fire cost an estimated $6,400,000. As a resident of Sedona at that time, I want to give a huge “Thank You” to all the amazing firefighters and support staff that fought this beast. You all did an amazing job. Due to the size of these images, they are only available in 8×10 prints.
Controlled Burn – At Oak Creek Vista, near Flagstaff, Arizona.
