    We had trouble with the route between Sargent and Salida over Marshall Pass. The road was blocked. We rode around and finally found what looked kind of like a mtb track heading in the right direction. About a mile later we came out at the other side of some construction. We still had to go around a gate to make it all the way over the Pass. No other impediments on the Salida side of the pass though the O'Haver Campground was closed for construction (our original camping target for the night) so I'm glad we camped on the Pass. I was surprised no one mentioned that to us at the Tomichi Creek store. Hopefully this is all cleared up when you guys get there.

    Packed and ready to go. I just hope they don't close down all the public lands out there due to the fire danger.

    I was in Colorado Springs Tuesday and Wednesday. The Media has blown this out of proportion. Though tragic for the families who lost there home. No one has been hurt and only 34K evacuated with .5M live there. No worries folks... local, State,and Federal doing a good job. Low risk.

    I'm sad... want to head South West right now and meet you all in NM.:evil

    it's not blown out of proportion when a friend of nearly 50 years is evacuated and the graphics of the fire are within two miles of his house. if the fire can jump I-25 the 34k will jump to the 100K+.
