Just got off a two day Santa Elena and the river was pretty big. Of course, so was the mud! We've seen a lot of rain in the region, with the majority around Presidio and OJ (3-7"!). Bofecillos Road should be avoided completely and Casa Piedra is probably impassable where it crosses Alamito Creek. The road to Sauceda Ranger Station at BBRSP is closed to all but high cleance 4x4 vehicles. The Luis Leon is at 80% and more rain is expected. Be careful out there and make sure and call in for updates before you travel!

ABUNDANT MOISTURE FROM THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM ODILE TO
MOVE ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST


If this shifts to east of the forecasted path, the Trans-Pecos may be in for some serious flooding, i.e. the Guads, Davis Mountains, etc. ...  :eusa_eh:
