It is north of Yosemite Valley ( and the Yosemite Park) that you are more
familiar with.....

Generally, pristine wilderness... with a big reservoir for supplying the
city of San Fransisco.....

All of California is basically a desert.   Little rain, hot summers, lots of
old small vegetation that has been very dry.  Perfect for wildfires....

It is said that when the first Western visitors to California came and saw
Los Angeles basin, they saw much smoke.. which they attributed to indigenous

It was more likely wildfires that ran rampant without rain to put them out
for months..... or even years....

Part of the Faustian bargain, I am afraid.
