Forest to host special guests stock that serve
Tuesday, July 15, 2014 — Lassen National Forest will have special guests for the fair parade this year in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
Two strings of Region 5 Packers, one from the Inyo and one from Shasta National Forest, are coming to the parade. Each string will have six animals carrying packed loads. Traditional tools continue to be used in wilderness areas because no mechanical equipment is allowed. Thus, mules continue to be the “fleet” of wilderness areas. The Shasta string is all matching mules and is quite a sight to see, even if you’re not horse person.
