VIDEO: A Bucket's Eye View Of The High Park Fire

http://youtu.be/EpuWP4XEiiA

Raw video from a camera attached to the tender line on a Blackhawk helicopter fighting the High Park Fire. Helicopter's have been a integral part of the fire fighting efforts both with the High Park and with the Estes Park Fire.

Jump ahead to about 2:55 to see a water drop in action.

This raw video was posted on YouTube by user alliefox25, there are two more videos posted as well from the High Park. One of a skycrane in action and the other a different angle on the Blackhawk.

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
