Since we can't add alerts to the website, this is the next best thing. DO NOT ATTEMPT THE RIDE I DID Back on June 21st until the "25 Mile Fire" has been extinguished!!! It has encompassed almost the full NE section of the loop I planned on this ride. Now I have a reason to go back, try it again, and record a "before and after fire" history like I did for Chelan Butte in 2015 when I got a before and after fire ride experience.
EVERYONE, always go to this site when you plan a real remote ride to check for current status on wildfires in our new climate of the northwest!
Stay safe everyone!!
