Table Rock Wilderness -- burn zone

Post by smithsummit » September 15th, 2020, 5:10 am

Hello,

https://www.google.com/maps/@44.9468672 ... 11k8hp49gn

It looks like the Table Rock Wilderness is contained in the burn zone near where the Beachie Creek and Riverside fires join. Seems like not many people are familiar with the area.

Stay safe,

According to the caltopo map from this morning, the fires have not yet joined. They are still a mile or two apart:

It would seem that at some point they will eventually join, but they don't seem to be moving too much right now (thankfully). It has burned a good bit of the Table Rock Wilderness however.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW-What a ride!

As of today they are still saying that both Table Rock itself and (barely) Rooster Rock are outside the fire line. Their online maps seem to show the same.
