Scenes from Red Bluff

When we went to Lassen National Park, we stayed in a Motel 6 in Red Bluff so we could get an early start. Fire trucks from all over the state were converging in the area and this was the scene behind the hotel.These were from different towns throughout the state, although they were all California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. One of the firemen was even kind enough to give us a tour of one of the trucks! Unfortunately I neglected to take pictures of that. Apparently most of theses trucks are designed to fight structure fires, not forest fires, so they were the ones out there protecting people's homes. It was getting dark, and the flash went off:They were all gone by the time we got up in the morning. We didn't even hear them leave.
