Please share road reports. Conditions change quickly this time of year. Be prepared for rocks and trees in the road, and deep snow in higher elevation. Remember there is no cell phone service.

Yellow Pine: Jan 17 we have 11″ of old snow on the ground. Local streets are very icy. Please respect residents and wildlife and SLOW DOWN.
“Drivers don’t speed through neighborhoods or most anywhere. Locals brake for kids, wandering dogs, deer, elk, moose, fox, beaver, squirrels and chipmunks. Most are lifetime members of SPLAT, the Society to Prevent Little Animal Tragedies.” – IME
