The town of Julian is just outside the Cleveland National Forest. You can see from this sign that the fire danger level is now at EXTREME.

I've always called him "Smokey the Bear", but the mascot's official name is "Smokey Bear". He was created in 1944 by the US Forest Service to teach forest fire prevention - looking good at 65 years old.
