    The range is closed until later this week

    The property has suffered significant errosion on the lower roads and has debris on the range and lower campsites. The bridge will be closed until later this week when I get the roads accessable and large debris removed. The exit road has also suffered major erosion in some areas and will also be closed until later this week. The Stat House did not take on any water but the level was 2" from the side door. It does nor appear any campers have moved but there are pallets, decks, firewood, and logs scattered about. I'll post again when I get this mess cleaned up and can open the range. Areas 4, 5, and 6 roads are passable but do not pull off the road or you could be there for a while.

    Will Early Bird be rescheduled due to range conditions?

    Thanks to Tim and the crew who came around Saturday morning and rousting us out to let us know about the cancellation and rising water. It was a real joy wading over to mylittle red Blazer and driving out! :? I guess we should all be thankful that there was no more substantial damage done such as floating campers, etc. See you after I send a dove out from my ark!!

    Tim, Thanks for your hard work...

    Any chance on info about our campsite area 6 and how high the water got in that area.
    Don't know if you had to move our trailer or it took on water and we need to head up for cleanup.

    From what I could see, the debris is washed up against your blocks but not the frame of your trailer so hopefully it did not take on water. Your steps are 75 feet away from your trailer though.
