Hello all,

Anyone know if the road situation has changed? We would love to take Grandpa up to see and the hike makes it a no-go.

Thanks all!

Nope. It's still closed. It sustained some new damage with the last big rain storm, plus the standing dead trees in the last quarter of a mile of road still need to come down.

What doesn't kill me does NOT make me stronger. It makes me anxious, bitchy, and vulnerable...but nobody wants to see that embroidered on a pillow...Lisa Kogan...thx LXL...sorry i stole it from you! Ok, maybe I'm not sorry :-P

Good morning Lumber Jill and thank you for the heads-up!

Sounds like Grandpa's trip might have to wait until next summer (God willing).

Thanks for the info, Lumber Jill…. I sure do miss being able to drive up to Butler's Peak and looking out from there.

The Fire Lookouts are opening the tower this weekend to be staffed for the summer on days when Lookouts are available. If I hear anything about opening the road to the public, I'll share it here.
