The pools at Deep Creek offer more than a cool dip on a hot day ("Not Everyone Gets Into Deep Creek's Pools," July 20). In August 1999, my son and a friend were camping at the pools when they became trapped by the rapidly burning Willow fire that blazed south through the mountains. Having no escape, they jumped into a pool and, with just their heads above water, managed to breathe through soaked towels as the fire raced past them.

The complete article can be viewed at:

The two people who were stuck were Van Wiggington, his dogs and Mike Degoia. They miraculously survived the Willow Fire together.

It is sad when people who have experienced many things together for numerous years find themselves at odds.

If Deep Creek were truly a uniting treasure all else would fall by the wayside.
