There were quite a lot of out of state plates too. While watching a bear family I met a couple from New Jersey who decided to take a western NP trip because they assumed no one would be in the parks during the pandemic.
Went to the Big 4 picnic area, the bridge is still washed out but they replaced the first section of the wooden walkway...they replaced the perfectly fine pressure treated wood with brand new non pressure treated wood...makes sense to me. Yet they still haven't replaced the section of the bridge over the river that washed out. When they put the bridge in, on the south side they filled the footing with something a bit larger than pea gravel. Sure, that won't wash away. Where do they find these people?
Then took a ride up the Coal lake road to check out the washout-slide area. The road is blocked maybe about a half mile prior to Coal lake. There are some steep cliffs above that scary road, hard to believe there aren't more slides.
Yesterday I went to Kelcema lake and fished a bit...someone drug a fiberglass boat up there and left it. It's not in bad shape so I brought some oars up and paddled around, it does leak some. The road is in good shape except for the first previously washed out section. My friend and I made it in his Subaru Crosstrek and I in my Suburban, but it is a bit of a challenge. Another case of flawed gobermint 'engineering'.....but it does keep the traffic down and hopefully the miscreants out.
-------------- Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
