Tenaya Wood sent us this interesting photo taken August 8 of the helibase at the Corta Fire off Old Harrison Pass Road in Northeast Nevada. She described it as having been taken from the “ABRO Box” — as in, Air Base Radio Operator. On Friday there were five helicopters working out of the base.
She took the photo with an iPhone 7 Plus, and is way better at using the panorama function than I am.
The Corta Fire, managed by Tyler Hecht’s Nevada Type 3 Team 1, has burned 16,533 acres southeast of Jiggs.
