According to the Caltopo Map it has overrun the HST and the northern flank is heading up the Kern Canyon to Chagoopa Falls heading towards Kern Hot Springs. :(

My permit just got cancelled (again)
Inyo National Forest as well as many other National Forests in California are closed (effective 9/7/20) due to the threat of unprecedented and dangerous fire conditions with a combination of extreme heat, significant wind events, dry conditions, and firefighting resources that are stretched to the limit.
This closure includes wilderness permits. Wilderness permits for 9/7/20 through 9/30/20 have been cancelled. This may be extended if needed. Permits canceled due to this closure will be refunded automatically through your recreation.gov account.

Embers seem to have started a separate smaller fire just north of the main fire, burning of the eastern and western sides of the Kern, at the southern end of the Red Spur.

Mono Hot Springs is dead center in this screenshot. Does not look good. It is very close to VVR now.

Hopefully they can hold a small perimeter around the VVR buildings

Last night they performed a backfire operation. That may contribute to the most overnight hotspots on the map.

I wish people would use something other than Facebook. I am keenly interested in learning what went down; but won't participate in that ecosystem. :/
