"It's a crew that hikes in and works with hand tools and goes where bulldozers cannot go because it might be too steep, or there might not be access for one reason or another," explained David Elkowitz, fire crew leader for the Diablos during their trip to Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
Elkowitz is Chief of Interpretation and Visitor Services at Big Bend National Park, where the team known as "Los Diablos" is based.
The were born out of necessity 20 years ago to help battle wildfires in Big Bend National Park, a remote region near the Texas-Mexico border.
"It's so remote that the nearest fire response is two days away for any large number of people," Elkowitz said.
"These folks work hard and keep themselves in good physical condition and continue to work on fires," said Elkowitz, who has known many of the Diablos for more than 20 years.

"We're not out there with active teams anymore because we've exhausted all possible clues," David Elkowitz, a spokesman for Big Bend National Park, told The Dallas Morning News in Friday's editions."We've got no place left to turn."
Park rangers noticed Bastien's car on June 3 in a lot that serious backpackers often use for overnight parking.
"Assuming he is indeed still out there," said Elkowitz, "the outlook would not be good."
He said people who go missing in Big Bend are usually found a few hours later.The body of a 42-year-old New York man, reported lost on a day hike in Big Bend on May 19, was found less than 24 hours later.He died of dehydration, officials said.
"It is not a common event to have someone lost and not found," said Elkowitz.
Bastien's car was found in the Mule Ears area on the park's west side.

Since that time, Shelby enthusiast David Elkowitz of Big Bend National Park has been coordinating the event; Elkowitz is president of the Terlingua Preservation Society, which recently raised $15,000 for local charities.
According to its website, "The Terlingua Preservation Society is a 501 3(c) non-profit corporation headed up by a group of friends who share a love for Carroll Shelby-designed vehicles and the Carroll Shelby legacy, in particular the very special part of the world he would go for R&R in his heyday: the Texas Big Bend country."
Elkowitz said his participation in promoting the idea of a motor sports complex is limited to bringing tourists to the area and "getting more heads in beds."
Although acting as a private citizen, Elkowitz is also an employee of the National Park Service. When asked by the Gazette if he though it was incongruent for the him, Chief Naturalist of Big Bend National Park, to promote a motor race track on land adjoining Mesa de Anguila, part of the national park, Elkowitz responded, "The two are separate. Plus, he added, "There's already an airport there," and commented that the track would not increase noise pollution. "Whether a loop or straightaway, it's all the same noise," said Elkowitz.
Bartee, Elkowitz, and Durant all emphasized the project is an excellent way to draw more tourists to the area, thereby benefiting the economy.
