11-24-22  Here is a shot of the Desolation LO wrapped as a precaution for the fires burning on the lower slopes of the peak.  This photo is courtesy of Jim the current Deso LO.
It is the first time any of us can remember the LO being wrapped.  As I mentioned to Jim — it almost looks like something that NASA would be getting ready to send into space….
Though the fires were down near the lake on the lower reaches — embers can fly upslope in the warm winds and land right on the old wood structure…..
