One of my favorite spots to get away is in Sequoia National Monument at Parker Meadow. The Trail of 100 Giants sequoia grove is just a few miles away. The dirt road going back to the camp is not marked off the main dirt road and hard to find if not looking. It's one of many fire safe areas that are listed on a free fire safe camping areas map available from the Sequoia Forest ranger stations. Elevation is 6,000ft so it's subject to snow this time of year.

Looks like a neat place.

I'm not sure I know what "fire safe" means. Care to explain?

When the fire danger is high the forest service puts in effect fire restrictions, no campfires outside of developed campgrounds or designated "fire safe" areas. Usually in a dry year it starts around April-May and ends around November or when enough rain has fallen. These areas are posted with signs showing the boundary where it is safe to build a fire. Campfire permits are also required along with a shovel and water to put the fire out. Fire safe areas are usually disperse camping areas with no facilities. Only gas stoves may be used outside of the fire safe areas or campgrounds during fire restrictions. Alway best to check with the ranger station to find out what restrictions apply before camping.

Here is a spot along the shore of Lake Superior. You fall asleep to the sound of the Lake Superior waves.

As yes, CALFIRE.

Thanks for the reply, I did a quick check on-line check of southern CA National Forests. Sure makes me feel good about living a bit farther north.
