Looking out on what’s left after the fire — we need to be prepared

For the past month, I have been making multiple trips to fire lookouts along the Grizzly Ridge. I started with Smith Peak four weeks ago; then traveled to Argentine Rock, and today visited Mt. Hough lookout, approaching from the Quincy side. Perhaps the most concerning message I can share with fellow Plumas residents is that the condition of the soils in these burned areas is so precarious that we in Plumas county would be wise to prepare for many travel disruptions this coming winter due to mudslides and rockfalls … and especially if we have a heavy wet winter.
