It’s sad but it’s just the beginning (or continuation) of more closures. There are just too many people (read irresponsible people) that are overwhelming the lands. With all the new RV-ers along with the large “overlanding” crowd...I’m surprised there aren’t more closures.
I’m in Flagstaff today and it feels like I’m living in an Apocalypse!
. Smoke everywhere. Fires burning out of control apparently, though I haven’t seen them. And this morning when I left Tucson, it was hotter than hades and I think there was smoke there too. (?). I left at 0400 so it was dark but very hot for 0400. I am worried about Arizona’s summer.
