There have been so many fires in that area over the past several years

it doesn't seem like there is anything left to burn.

 

A lot of beautiful country going up in flames.

 

The air quality today for the Markleeville area is above 500.Dangerous

for all groups of people.

This map may interest you. While the Washiington fire in 2015 came close to Markleeville and something or other in the Monitor Pass area seems to burn every year the Grover Hot Springs and Markleeville area have not burned "recently". But I did notice that the Chris Fire, in the Walker Canyon, Nov, 2017 is missing from this map so I am not sure of the accuracy and it seems to go back only 10 years.  I remember a big fire closer to Woodfords but I think that was back in the late '80s.

Thanks for the info.

I was thinking about that fire on the ridge

across from Woodfords that area was very

slow to show new growth.Yes I believe it was 

sometime mid 80s.

 

It's always sad to see/watch our forested areas burn.

 

For thew 30 years we had our cabin in Dorrington,we spent

a lot of time along the hwy corridor.Lots of great memories.

Frank, I remember that fire as the Crystal Springs fire. It started right near the Crystal Springs Campground in the canyon.
