They don't open it until memorial day.

They open it as soon as they can. The road is fairly north facing.

First Fork Road (Forest Rd #622) – Closed

Check here for updates.

Probably not going to effect the road opening, but there's a forest fire burning in the canyon now.

I assume it is a prescribed fire. Lots of Forest Service traffic on the road, but the gate is being kept closed. There's a helicopter based near the takeout, too.

Here's the news release:

That's my helicopter, I hit the powerball and it is my new shuttle vehicle!

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!

I like to see a "plastic sphere device" in action.

Probably nothing as dramatic as these torches:
