We are also most likely going to take the Workman Creek road up to the falls after the run, time permitting

I was at the Workman Creek area in late March and there was a tree that had fallen on the forest service gate just past the boy scout cabins on the way to the falls. My long wheel base stock height Tacoma would have got high centered if I would have tried to go over. I believe a lifted FJ with skids and sliders would be able to get over it. A stock fj may need dragged over it. I know my buddies 4Runner that I built would have made it over but he must have been having a heavy flow and did not want to try it.

That fire's about out Mikey. If it burns to Asbestos point, Globe would have already been burned up. It's 10 miles away.

I don't know where the ruins are, but we are heading up there in the afternoon and going to camp up there after we look at the falls. We can certainly look at the ruins too
