[pct-l] Fire in CA Section E
I'd also suggest that hikers check in Agua Dulce for more current and local
information. Most thru hikers are probably in Section C now and have over a
week before hitting the fire area. Maybe those ahead of the pack will post
more specific info.
I heard on the news last night the fire was also in the Sierra Pelona south
of Bouquet Canyon.
Unfortunately the LA CHP has not been posting road closures since last
