Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

I stole this photo off one of my friends face book page---it is probably copywrighted but I took it anyway. This is a photo of a runaway fire on the Boise National Forest in 2006---my friend was burned on his arms, face and legs running from it. One of his crew members took the picture as they ran.

good grief! I really don't think I would have the guts to do something like that - I'm so afraid of fire and being burned!

I'm sorry your friend got burned, but that is a totally awesome picture!
