I'll post some this after noon. The HL was VERY quiet for an August weekend AND being opening archery weekend. I didn't see anyone at Long, a large group at Cambell, and didn't see anyone camping at SV either. Weird

ditto on the thanks.  We got a total of 8 fire rings installed, and every trail is cleared except Pipejam, which probably just had the snow melt off finally last week.  it is usually about two weeks behind the T.  There will be a LNF OHV crew of three guys out there for a couple more weeks working on re-doing some of the rock dumps so that OHV's dont drive around them.

Have there been any complaints from the single trackers? Those rock piles look hard to cross on a dirt bike.

If a rider had enough talent to make it past the stairsteps and the ledge, I don't think the rock pits would be a problem to drive through.  So to me, there is nothing wrong with a hard spot, at least not any harder than those "gatekeeper" spots.  But if given the option of the rocks or a nice hardpack to the side, around they go.  My XR100 made it through stuff like that.  Just hang onto the bar and ride the bike, don't let it ride you.  Then again, I made it through Pipejam on that little Honda too.  Then I sold it to my neighbor.

that camp actually is on the map and has a firering.  If it was the one on the grassy lake side of the road, its a nice campsite, and the road does look kinda rogue, but its just full of grass.  there is a road there, but lots of bugs too!
