Thank you, firefighters

An immense rainbow stretched across the Hough and Argentine peaks above American Valley on Sept. 16 as welcome rain arrived to help drench the 54,612-acre Walker Fire just over the ridges in Genesee Valley. The wildfire broke out Sept. 4 and drew grateful aid from over 2,000 personnel at its height. The fire was 98 percent contained as of Sept. 20. Photo by Roni Java
