I *heard* they got to the del Carmens, but it was so brief and sandwiched between so much other fire news I can't verify that.
Quote from: Front Street Books on April 13, 2011, 03:58:33 PM I *heard* they got to the del Carmens, but it was so brief and sandwiched between so much other fire news I can't verify that. MDC & SDC got spared...barely. The rest of the mountain ranges: Del Burro, Sierra de Santa Rosa, Sierra Madre Oriental...chared completely. Many wildlife and fauna,completely wiped out due to the Wild Fires. There is a surmountable work ahead, for all the ranchers and Ejidatarios to bring it back on it's feet. It will take decades, to say the least..... The Evergreen fire 747 jet is supposed to be doing wonders by now.
According to today's Daily Report, the Window Trail is now closed because of fire danger.
One would think they would close the Lost Mine trail... if a fire erupted there, it would shut off the only road leading into the Basin.
Extended forecast calls for no change...
The 10-day forecast shows a 30% chance of rain with scattered thunder storms on April 24:http://www.weather.com/outlook/driving/interstate/tenday/79834
