Plague Case in SEKI 8/28

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Plague Case in SEKI 8/28

The Superintendent of Sequoia-Kings NPs sent out a notice today (08/28) that a rodent (either a chipmunk or ground squirrel) found dead at Crabtree Ranger Station tested positive for plague.

Thank you so much for this info, this has not been posted anywhere on the SEKI NPS webpage as of yet.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

A lot of backcountry areas seem to have robust rodent populations this year...
