Carpenter One Fire Maps with Hiking Trails and RRCNCA Boundaries - 7/11/13

Updated Fire Map with Red Rock Canyon NCA Boundaries
 Finally, an updated map was put onto the InciWeb site for the fire boundaries at this time. The fire has crossed into the Red Rock Canyon NCA and is closest to the La Madre ridge just above the La Madre Spring Cabin and Mine hike located behind the White Rock Hills.

Closer View of Boundary Information
 The magenta line indicates the official Red Rock Canyon NCA boundary. The dark blue line indicates the La Madre Wilderness within the NCA. And, the light blue line indicates the Rainbow Wilderness within the NCA. The Spring Mountains NRA boundary is not indicated here.

Updated Fire Map Showing Trails on Both Sides of La Madre Ridge
 Adding the hiking trails, this map indicates that the spread of the fire (eastward) has not affected our playground for the past two days.

View from Upper Kyle Canyon
 This map shows how the two areas (Spring Mtns. NRA & Red Rock Cyn NCA) back up to each other.

And, finally, this map shows how much ground and very difficult terrain is still between the fire and the main Red Rock hiking area.
