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.


Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.

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

There are a couple of stages that are above grey water that are called treated one of them is supposed to be drinkable. Gray water can come straight from your sinks, and washing machine.

I've seen those sprinklers also. Interesting way to deal with treated wastewater

For anyone planning on traveling the 14 freeway. The 14 is currently being closed from the NB5 on the south end to Ave M in Palmdale on the north end. The Sand Fire has gotten very ugly in the Acton area.

So, it is grey water then?

Yes, it is the treated water from the sewage treatment facility. There is that hillside that is somewhat visible from the 330, but also a pipeline that drops down into the next drainage to the east and that area has a much larger rainbird setup.

Thanks for the information. We've been full-time on the mountain for sixteen years and never saw it before...

Also for anyone interested Sand Fire just lost air support in one division due to use of a drone.

I was going to say it is too low for SV. It is in Fredalba. Seen it many times.

I know that it is the Running Springs sewage treatment plant, just below Smiley Park/Fredalba. I always figured it's just them getting rid of treated water.

They could be working on a new snowmaking system, I know snow valley pulled out all their air/waters years back and went with fan guns. Maybe they're putting them back in and testing... seems a little more logical.
