Took a trip out to hike Vallecito and also photographed the helicopters fighting the Eagle Fire blaze in Palm/Henderson Canyons. I remembered my new camera has HD video on it also so I recorded a few videos of the helicopters coming in for a water pickup, check out my website to watch them.

You can read my full Trip Report and watch the videos on my website here http://www.sefcik.com/2011/07/eagle-fire-vallecito-hike-abdsp.html

Here are a few photos from my Trip Report

I wanted to go check out the cave he was in but figured maybe next time...too many large scats around and I had just seen 2 coyotes run by. It was a 100+ degrees and I was about 7 miles away from anything so I turned back.
