Gotta love the first comment

"BigBendChat.com always has updated info on the park. Its run by locals and guides."
Well, Casa Grande does own some property out there, and I'm not shy about telling people where to go, so I guess that's kind of true, in a very vague and non-binding sense of the word(s).

Politics isn't supposed to happen here right? I just want to complete the OML.  Seems to me our access to National Parks shouldn't be held hostage to any administration.  I wonder which way Teddy Roosevelt would lean. https://www.nps.gov/thro/learn/historyculture/theodore-roosevelt-quotes.htm

True that.  I hope you and everyone else can finally get their hikes in.

the Texas Secretary of State's office discovered that a total of approximately 95,000 individuals identified by DPS as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voter registration record in Texas, approximately 58,000 of whom have voted in one or more Texas elections," Whitley said in a Friday news release.

Reading the article it sounds like the investigation is not finished yet.  Could be fake news but we are not getting into politics here are we.

Seriously, folks, I was just passing on the unfiltered announcement, without any intended comment of any kind. I figured that was the least political way of doing it. If I could have found a pure YouTube without intro or analysis, I would have used that. This was the least intrusive version I could find.

Strange.  I was just researching backpacks on Amazon for the OML, and came across this which just hit the market today - only 5.7 billion.  It stated limited time only though.   :icon_wink:

When are the visitor centers opening back up?
It's amazing how quickly the human body deteriorates when you sit around indoors.

Dunno. My guess is sometime this week, once the facilities have  been given a good cleaning. I wouldn’t count on it, though, until the NPS publishes something in the BIBE website or FB page.

I've heard indirectly that the NPS will again staff the PJ VC at noon Monday, although the bookstore there has been open for the past 2 weeks.
