Jim you of all people should have known that was a prescribed control burn.
You really let me down you should have been the one letting us know that it was nothing to be concerned with it. Sad Sad Sad

Sure did but only because I knew it was a planned burn. Was looking for it all day. To see if they would do it.

Hey John that was the same spot we had our lunch on our last trip up the control road.

Oh, that stinks, I hope it didn't burn the canopy. I saw the flames after dark.

Nice video Jim! I had a few minutes to spare in my class the other day and popped it up on the screen for my 5th graders. They enjoyed the ride up the mountain!

Was up here this weekend, didn't see it mentioned anywhere but they close this road about 9 miles from the top From Dec 15th to March 5th or something like that. I still made the trip and no way around the gate but there is a big turn around area just before.

Take a look at Way point 14. Is that where you had to turn around?
