This June 3, 2013 photo shows a smokejumper handling protective clothing at the Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center in Missoula, Mont. Throughout the summer, tours are offered six times a day at the center, giving a look at the preparation and skill required of the men and women who parachute in to attack fires in remote, rugged places.
