Great info. I guess i should look them up individually myself, but off the top of your head:

Do you know which of these were on the PCT? The only one i know for sure is the Station Fire in Section D, but i wonder if the burnt out stuff south along the Laguna road is part of the 1970 Laguna fire, and also where the 2008 Basin Complex fire or Carr fires were. That was one of my two thru years, and there was smoke basically through all of California. We didn't see Shasta until Oregon, looking back to it.
