They typically don't reopen an area around a fire till Oct if even then. Look at the Entiat it took a couple years to get it opened back up. So make alternate plans

Yeah monster, the closure area is bummer. But there are lots of GREAT big bulls running around the teanaway in areas that are open! You'll be just fine :tup:

Looking at taking the family to Roslyn tomorrow to see Grandma. Anyone know how the smoke is up there? My youngest is a month and a half I don't really wanna smoke him out.

Thanks for the update and the tip on the market. I'll mention it to my wife I'm sure she would love to go.
