Just found this opinion piece by Karin Klein of the LA Times that raises some valid points about public lands;
"this land is your land, but it's my land too"-

An illegal campfire started the Rim Fire

Whoever this hunter was, they certainly didn't intend to start a 200,000+ acre wildfire
that wasted millions of dollars and placed thousands of firefighters in harm's way- it was an accident.

But when the smoke clears, they will likely be saddled with an enormous fine
and will be lucky not to serve prison time.

The take-home message is that the current fire restrictions are no joke- please observe them!
