Is the road closed at the ranch yet?

My guess is no cause it was open last weekend and its been nice weather since. The storm last weekend put about 10 inches on the road near the TH though. Enough to put a car in the ditch that I pulled out. If I was planning anything I'd give the forest service a quick call.

I found it closed just past the ranch Friday night the 16th. It looked like some vehicle travel during the day but maybe not for the general public. It was closed on my return Sunday afternoon and there were people walking up the road.

I had a red "abandoned vehicle" tag on my door. "If this car is not gone in 24 hours it will be towed at the owners expense". I had a note on my dash saying I would be out Sunday night but maybe they didn't see it or didn't care. ?? We didn't get that last winter but I believe we were parked closer to the ranch.
