Check out the latest California Updates

Two October 2019 fires — the Kincade Fire in northeastern Sonoma County and the Saddle Ridge Fire in Los Angeles County — have all been contained. There were no fatalities associated with either fire and the affected acreage of these two incidents amounts to less than 0.08% of California’s total area.

It is worth noting that California is a massive state—roughly 900 miles long and 350 miles wide. For a better sense of the distances separating many California communities, please review California Geography Essentials, which also lists drive times between key destinations.

If you are planning a trip to California and want real-time perspective on its destinations, visit Here Is What California Looks Like Right Now, a continually updated blog post showcasing traveler photography.
