In the spring and early summer, there’s an abundance of water to go swimming, biking and camping in Southern California.
The weather’s a breeze in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and it’s also a bit drier than the year before, so many visitors can enjoy some downtime with their loved ones at the resorts.
The Sierra Nevada has long been known for its stunning scenery and the lush, green, sandy, and white vegetation that grows on its beaches.
But a new report from the U.S. Forest Service suggests that the state’s unique environment is changing.
The report, released in conjunction with a book about the history of the Sierra, tells of the destruction of the iconic lodge complex and other historic structures in the state by wildfires and other environmental factors.
As more and more of the state suffers from wildfire, the Sierra has lost more of its historic and cultural properties, said Gary Kline, a professor at the University of California, Davis.
The Forest Service report shows that this is a particularly troubling trend, he said.
“The last time we had a loss of these historic structures was before the Great Fire of 1871,” he said, referring to a massive wildfire that burned through much of California in 1863.
“It took a lot of damage and a lot to put it back together.
But now it’s just not going to happen.””
For a while, there was a period of time where people were still able to go out to the mountains and the water was flowing.
But now it’s just not going to happen.”
The report said that in the late 1800s and early 1900s, a major fire burned through many of Yosemite Valley and the surrounding area, including the famous Big Sur Lodge, which is the tallest of all of California’s major lodge complexes.
But the damage was extensive, and by the early 1900’s, the lodge was mostly gone.
“The lodge was a major attraction, and people were able to come and enjoy it, but then the fire came along and the lodge became an irreplaceable part of the landscape,” Kline said.
The lodge is currently on the National Register of Historic Places.
In addition to the lodge, the report shows how the destruction affected the coastal communities along the coast.
The region was devastated by a fire that destroyed much of the area, the largest fire in California history.
The Great Salt Lake and other coastal communities lost important sites, including a 19th century railroad station and the largest saltwater dam in the world, the Great Salt Creek.
“In a very short period of fire, the water table in many of these communities has been significantly lower than it would have been if it had not been for the fires,” KLine said.
The report also looks at the impacts of wildfires on wildlife.
“We see the impacts on animals of the fires, which are not the fires themselves, but the environmental impacts that come from the fires as well,” Klines said.
For example, fires often destroy the habitat for wildlife that otherwise would be preserved.
The effects of these fires are especially severe on birds, he added.
In the past few decades, some of California and the nation’s other big cities have been recovering from the devastation caused by wildfires, and some have begun to build back their historic character.
But other areas have suffered massive loss of biodiversity, including parts of the coast, the Central Valley, and parts of Los Angeles.
The loss of the Great Sur Lodge is part of this story, the Forest Service said.
“One of the things that we’ve found is that the loss of some of these places, particularly in the Central California area, that were once a destination for tourists, have really been hit hard by the fires and the loss,” Klin said.
That loss of heritage, he explained, has been particularly hard on some people who have lost their homes or lost their livelihoods.
“What it’s really hard about is that for many of those people, it’s not the loss that they were hoping for, it was not the big, beautiful lodge,” Kloan said.
