Fire restrictions for SEKI and Inyo Forest on 01/31/2012 20:24:27 MST Print View

Does anyone know if there are fire restrictions for SEKI and Inyo National Forest? I'm planning a trip from Horseshoe Meadows to Whitney Portal and I'd like to take a wood stove with me. So far my google searching has come up empty.

Not above 10,000 in SEKI
Not above 10,400 in Inyo NF north of Horseshoe Mdw.
Not on Whitney Trail.

If there is fire danger they may have a lower limit too. Sometimes 8,000 or evn 9000 in SEKI due to lots of heavy fuel down low.

Pretty much your whole route is out. Which is why my wood stove has been used to play with but only on one trip in 20 years.

Thanks...that sounds familiar/what I remember from doing the same trip a few years back but I couldn't remember for sure or find the info on their websites.
