    A close up look at mop-up: spray, mix, feel, repeat. The most efficient use of water when digging heat out of the ground is a combined spraying and stirring action. The fire burns roots in the ground, like little (and not so little) hidden tunnels of embers and trapped heat winding their way below. We follow them with tools and sensory input to smother and disperse heat until it no longer can feasibly spread or reignite. Basically, we like making mud, lots of it, and playing in it.

    Your caption and image both set the scene so perfectly, Eli. I love how the headlamps are illuminating the water in this photograph. A great documentation of this moment.
