Yikes! Woke up to smoke in the valley on Saturday morning only to find out that Diamond Fork canyon is on fire. 1781 acres burned so far and only 10% containment this morning. The fire is burning north of Highway 6 between Long Hollow and Sheep Creek, and south of Teat Mountain. Some of our favorite riding area may get burned up this week. Containment isn't expected for another week -- that's if conditions are favorable. Sorry to say it, but I think we can expect any trails caught in the fire to be closed for for this season and maybe all next year as well.
I was wondering where all the smoke was coming from. Bummer...I guess that's what we have learn to expect living in the second driest state in the nation.
