since the website for El Dorado National Forest is down, I assume they are lifting the seasonal closure on the 16th. As such - I ride:smirk: I will play the ostrich, head in the sand and not check the website tomorrow. I do not want anymore bad news, so i will assume it is open! Plus, it is raining/snowing at my place right now. No dust, potting soil all the way:thumbsup: Hope to get a good 60 miler in at least!!!
