Soberanes Fire Update, August 17

Retreats and guest visits are cancelled until August 22.

The fire continues to move very slowly, and there is no change overnight in the fire moving closer to Tassajara. The Unified Fire Command continues to work to cut off the fire to prevent it from reaching Tassajara using retardants and back burning. The cooler weather and the marine layer are helping to slow down the fire as well.

We hope to make an announcement tomorrow regarding a date for reopening the Tassajara Guest Season. We are still optimistic we can reopen, but the decision is dependent on the back burning being completed to ensure the air is clear in the Valley.

Thank you for your patience and kind words of support. Deep bows from Tassajara.
