the mountains are open…

The fires are out…

Sunday is forecast to be a cool 82 degrees…

Things are looking Fall.

I rode by the trailhead yesterday to scout out the openness of the forest. I figured everything would be blocked off still with signs and that yellow do-not-cross tape but it was totally clear. Totally quiet too. No one around. I don’t think anyone knows it’s open. Unfortunately I only had time to ride back about a mile just to see if everything was a go. I don’t know why but I was scared I was going to get arrested for entering the closed forest.

Hope to make it up there this weekend to observe the fire (and ‘dozer!) scars first hand.

Take some photos ... so we can watch the forest grow back up.

I ran a 20 miler in the mountains in Glendale last Saturday with some friends and was breathing some smoke.

I am still in CA and am glad that is cooling down a bit as well. Last week was hot!!
