Fall Ignitions Complete for Sherman Prescribed Burn

SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif. October 4, 2019 – Fire staff completed ignitions on the last segment of the Sherman Prescribed Burn unit today, with 244 acres treated since Wednesday. The other segments of this prescribed burn were treated in July 2019, and this final segment brings the project to a total acreage of 489.

Tulainyo Lake

The view I've desired more than any other on the planet - for the deep blue of its waters, the stark purity of its shape, and sublimity of its setting. It is one of the highest lakes in North America, with no inlet, outlet, or easy approach. The highest mountain in the lower 48 states, Mount Whitney, is right next door.
