When I drove up to Cedar Breaks (post coming) I passed through the mop up from the Ridge Fire along Highway 89 north of Jacob Lake about 6 miles. It really didn’t look too bad from the road. Many tree survived to continue life in the forest.
Although the Aspen Fire still burns on the Walhalla Plateau, now over 2,000 acres, the road to Cape Royal is reopened from 8am to 7pm with possible delays. I’d really like to get out there but my busy work schedule just doesn’t take me that way.
The three fires on the South Rim are still being monitored and meeting resource expectations.
