Hello everyone here is a current updated road report. Sorry for the delay, due to IT problems I have been unable to send out and update the road report. Because of extremely dry conditions all roads are very dusty with washboards and some sandy areas forming. Conditions could change by next week with forecasted moisture moving in? I will update the road report as needed. Caution to drivers to be prepared if problems arise, with plenty of water and food if they have to spend extra time out there. Be safe out there!. For current updated road conditions and information contact your local friendly visitor center!
As always, PLAN AHEAD, BE PREPARED, AND BE SAFE!
