Here are a couple pictures from the past 2 days' adventures. More to come but I'm off now to go be "Where In So Cal Is Cammy San Diego".

Damn you drive fast when I'm not around!

Cool video. Forest looks great 3x time would have been the way I like to roll sometimes.
I guess I will have to start learning the numbers for the roads

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

2N93 still hasn't opened for the season yet. Also, the gate on 2N13 at 3N14 is still closed. 2N13 is the road to get to Butler Peak.

Have you heard if the public will be allowed to drive to Butler Peak this summer?

Update from yesterday - The snow patch is barely noticeable on 3N12, in fact we saw a small Honda car (Civic, I think) that I have to assume passed over the snow patch unless they drove up & turned around before it.
We completed the eastern section of 3N08 - map: [Click Here]. 4WD is a must for this part of the road as there is a steep, rocky section of the road.
3N14 from 3N08 to Big Pine Flat is in great shape and I believe a passenger car would have no trouble making it from Fawnskin to Big Pine Flat on this route - map: [Click Here]
From Big Pine Flat you can head East on 3N16 which is supposed to be a good road (green rating, I believe). But there is a section just east of Big Pine Flat that had seen much erosion in the past few years. We did not need 4WD for any of this road yesterday. We went all the way to 2N09 - map: [Click Here] but the higher clearance of the Tundra was nice to have. There was one spot where I tried to cross a rutted section on the road and ended up having only my left front and right rear wheels on the ground! I had to back up and approach the rut from a different angle to get through.
3N97 - map: [Click Here] and 3N04Y - map: [Click Here] have been closed, I believe, since the Butler 2 Fire. They still have closed gates at the A & B markers on the previous 2 map links.

A change of underwear is helpful, also

Well, the birthday party went off fairly well considering there were 20 six year olds running and screaming throughout the house. Not my idea of a good Saturday. The granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed herself as Elsa from Frozen, and the decorations were amazing. Not sad, however, that it is over.

I believe she close at the end of July. Shelley have been there for 25 years and said it was just time then they also raised her lease so I can't blame her but I sure do miss her open houses and all the lovely gifts she had.she was one of the nicest ladies ever! Now shelly knew how to give customer service the old-fashioned way.

Shelly's Hallmark closing was very sad to me also. Guess no one buys cards anymore but I do!

Benny I totally agree with u re: la Montana.!it used to be a nice place we have a lot of fun family times there and lots of great memories. But I had noticed service had gone downhill and food really was not that great I guess it was just the good memories we had of our family going there. Thanks for the info cricket that was very interesting I hope the restaurant reopens and is a success!

This was told to me by a variety of sources, including some things told to me by workers there

La Montana's business was declining, and as I hear it, Hacienda Grill took a lot of their customers. That being said, the owner of La Montana closed the place down, and has spent the last several months completely renovating the premises, including a major overhaul of the actual kitchen. They had planned on being open again on Oct 1st, however, due to the major kitchen overhaul, that was not possible. They now have a target date of Dec. 1st. They will no longer be serving Mexican food, but will, however, have American Cusine...Breakfast (all day), lunch and Dinner. It is beautiful inside, and I am looking forward to trying them out once they are open.

It's too bad, back in the day that was the place to go!

When service gets bad along with the food, they do not get the customers they need to stay open. Twice we waited almost 20 mins just to get service and then the food was not up to standard..IMHO

Not sure what happened, but usually restaurants are kind of forced to close when they don’t pay their employees and food poison customers, like I said I have no idea what happened.
