Saturday morning some folks made it in Johnson Creek via Landmark, reported some trees down – travel at your own risk. Currently the best route is via the South Fork. High elevation roads are still closed, snow is melting an inch or two each day, rivers are rising. Be prepared for rocks and trees in the road, remember there is no cell phone service. Please share road reports.
Yellow Pine: We have had a little rain in the last few days to settle the dust. Please respect residents and slow down!
