Silver Fire Prompts Black Mountain Closures
The Silver Fire in the San Gorgonio Pass has already charred 11,000 acres, prompting the closure of many areas within San Bernardino National Forest's San Jacinto Ranger District. "It's precautionary," said Carol Underhill, a public information officer, "we don't expect the fire to go into the area."
Black Mountain Road (2E35), a single lane, dead-end dirt road is among the closures, which also includes Black Mountain Trail (2E35), Black Mountain Fire Lookout, Fuller Ridge Trailhead, the six isolated campgrounds known as Black Mountain Yellow Post Sites, Black Mountain Group Camp, Boulder Basin Campground, Lake Fulmor Day Use Area, and Highway 243 between Banning and Azalea Trail (4S02).

Created by policymakers in the 1940s, the border zone extends 100 miles inland from the nation’s land and sea boundaries and houses nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population. It's also where the 4th amendment rights of the people have been subverted.
We have forgotten how to be medicine to the land, and to ourselves. The members of Syuxtun Collective are revisiting lost indigenous wisdom of learning and listening, of harvesting and preparing plant medicine in participation with nature.
