I bought these shovels at COSTCO Wholesale a couple years ago and had one in each vehicle for winter driving. Little did I know they would come in so handy for fire line.
These babies are awesome! Light as a feather and have a slight point to them. Did much better than I ever expected in this rocky terrain in the edge of Church Canyon.
I am standing in the edge of Church Canyon from the Kidder Ridge side and things are looking better. The fire did hop the canyon a bit, but the Hicks (no pun), Dept. of Lands, and our Motley fire brigade put it out. We cut a fire line all the way up the side…we don’t just look at it and study fire behavior…we whip it and send it to bed!
