Overlapping Fires

With some data downloaded from the California Fire and Resource Assessment Program, I calculated acreages of overlapping fires in the 20th century above 3,000 feet and within wilderness, roadless areas, or National Park boundaries.  Interestingly, there are seven acres of land (the darkest red) that burned nine different times in the Stanislaus National Forest.
