Memorial Hike

On Fourth of July, went to Yarnell and hiked at Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial State Park. Hotshots were a 20 man fire crew. On June 30, 2013, they were fighting the Yarnell Hill fire. 19 were trapped and died. It's a 3.5 mile hike to site. While the trail is very well maintained, it's rocky and goes uphill: 1,163 feet before going down into the valley. The site is very powerful: 19 rock baskets, connected by chains, surround the area where the crew died. I'm glad I had a chance to honor these brave men.
