One of the things to think about if you have mining claims is if a fire happens to burn the vegetation on your claim. It is going to take out all of your markers and claim papers. Even if you used painted steel stakes, the info will be cooked off. It looks like the fire went through the 155 so the markers are most likely ash.  Probably need to check this as soon as the forest re opens and bring new claim location paperwork and claim markers.  Highway 120 re opened on Sept 6 but the Stanislaus national forest is closed by federal decree until the fire is out. You can call them to check for when we will be allowed back in.   Groveland District 24545 Highway 120 Groveland, CA 95321 (209) 962-7825.  Heard spinning wheel lost a couple of buildings.  Last weekend I drove down ferriti road to the road block. In that area you could see between the trees some of the burned landscape.  Anxious to get down to the rainbow pool area and rim of the earth to see the area.  Saw a few photos of the guard rails laying on the ground as all the wooden supports were gone. All because a hunter disobeyed the no campfire rules. They know who he is but will not release the name. cricstcwhich

They don't want this person to be lynched...   You know Groveland was originally one of the Garotte's, a hanging town.

No idea how cricstcwich got ther. Oh well. Yes it is a good idea not to do the release of his name. He has enough problems with the law on this one. You would not want to see something happen to his family because of decisions he made.
