MAPS IN THE NEWS:
It's another devastating wildfire season for California. My kids had a permit to hike Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous U.S., for tomorrow morning, but the National Forest Service closed 8 California national forests, including Inyo National Forest surrounding Mount Whitney, and pulled all hiking permits indefinitely Monday night for the first time in decades ;-(. This interactive map from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection tracks wildfires across the state, including the ones in the southern Sierra Nevadas near Mount Whitney. www.fire.ca.gov/incidents/
