The 2020 #BearFire #NorthComplex and the 2021 #DixieFire destroyed historic buildings, fire lookouts, old cabins, residential houses, small towns and rural communities; plus old growth forests and unimaginable numbers of wildlife. Many roads, trails and campgrounds are closed to the public; while reforestation may take many decades, if not a century.

That’s a whopping 50 mile stretch, hence 318,935 acres. Expect campground closures, damaged trails and heavy logging activity. Charred forests also exist all the way around Indian Valley and Lake Almanor, and along Highway 70, east of Quincy, CA

PCT – Pacific Crest Trail is burnt from Bucks Lake to Lassen!
