And for those forests not on the total closure list... the rest have all campgrounds closed and no stoves allowed.

Another fire started in the Sierra National forest called the Creek Fire. Guess what was missed by the previous fires is in harms way. It went right through much of the Sierra Vista Byway and Shuteye Peak area marked in yellow. And it doesn't look good down by Huntington either. These areas were hit by the bark beetle and then heavy snows knocked down a bunch of dead timber that was never cleared well. Hope they get a hold of it.

I read about the Creek Fire last weekend but the stories didnít explain the conditions existing up to the fire Today things sound even worse, with more evacs. I havenít heard back from several Oregon friends who I know are busy evacuating and helping parents- thanks for info here

We were up at Mono Hot Springs several weeks back and I was shocked that they allowed fires in the forest even back then, as it was VERY dry. Also a very slow going one lane road in and out. A true nightmare when a fire starts, only having one road in/out...

Personally, when camping in the forest, I rarely have a fire in summer even when allowed. A far bigger worry for me is how I would know if there was a fire nearby as it would be nearly impossible for anyone to warn me. That's just another reason I love camping in the winter, I hope all my California friends stay safe..................
