BAKERSFIELD - Officials are warning people to be careful if they are headed to the mountains this Memorial Day weekend .
Kern County Search and Rescue held a ceremony on Friday to change the number on the sign at the mouth of the Kern Canyon to represent the two lives lost last year on the river.
The sign now reads 269 lives lost since 1968.
Search and rescue says anyone going in the water should be wearing a lifevest.
Fire officials are also warning campers this weekend.
They say if your campground does not have a fire ring or other approved place to start a fire you have to use a camp stove with a knob that controls the flame. Charcoal grills are not allowed.
