Travel-Trip-Montana Smokejumper Base
This undated photo provided by the Missoula Smokejumper Base in Missoula, Mont., shows a smokejumper descending through the air. Throughout the summer, public tours are offered daily at Missoula’s Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center, giving a look at the preparation and skill required of the smokejumpers who are trained to parachute in to attack fires in remote, rugged places.
