While traveling US 395 going to and from our cabin, we pass the site of the 2003 Cannon fire. Over the years I have noticed that T-shirts have been accumulating on a wire fence near the fire area. Today I stopped to check it out.
I found this plaque commemorating the crew of a fire tanker which crashed near the site while fighting the fire. Most, though not all of the shirts are from various fire-fighting agencies and as you can see many other mementos have been left over the years.
I was sorry that I had never stopped before. It had the feel of a place of pilgrimage for firefighters and others.
If you are ever driving through the area and want to stop, here is where you will find it.
