What a fine way to end the year, we saw, when DonationCoder was named the most useful forum on the Internet
. Wow, mouser! But at the exact same time, I found this picture which I haven't seen before, even though it seems it used to be famous, and I thought you all should see it. Not because of the increased fire hazards tonight, but because it is a fantastic picture, I think. The photographer was on the job as a fire behavior analyst from USDA Forest Service, eight years ago when he took this picture, and so the camera's default was "compress". Nevertheless it turned out to be an amazing photo! Notice the two deer in the creek.
