Tex Gilligan is the one who told Joy A. Collura to get her camera out of her back pack and snap all these vehicles because he felt it would one day be very important.

Figure 54. We were both very exhausted from helping so many directly and UNITED WAY wanted us to speak at one of their presentations and what the world did not know we had worked 12 to 17 hours shifts seven days a week so to get to this presentation and no monies for gas and we were both very very sore and tired. We helped a lot with United Way that Summer as well. We did spread ourselves thin when I look back but we made it through. Source: Joy A. Collura

Figure 63. The hikers took photos of Wildland Firefighters Source: Joy A. Collura

The hikers took photos of Wildland Firefighters who later (Prescott Yavapai College evacuation phase) Joanna Dodder-Nellans of Prescott Daily Courier stated -did you know, you have the last photos of the GMHS? How does that make you feel?- and we thought how are we suppose to feel...We were on the Weavers to alert prospectors not be one of the last folks to have seen, watch and photograph these men's actions that fateful day. Yet since the YH Fire I have seen so much misinformation and bullying and down right disgusting behaviors shown towards the hikers for trying to fact check this tragedy that we eye-witnessed and it is continually wrong. Why is it so many engines were not even added to this investigation reports but some of the people who were in crucial areas...their family members participated in the fillum. Yet the film never even touch the Helms/Sesame/Shrine areas and that is the most important area to June 30, 2013
