Great news, he Index-Galena road has reopened after 17 years! https://www.heraldnet.com/news/the-best-day-in-17-years-locals-revel-in-index-galena-road-reopening/?%3Futm_medium=social&utm_source=Facebook_HeraldNet_organi

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

The Green Mountain Rd that leads to the Three Fingers TH has a new road blockage. At 5.1 miles from the Mt Loop Highway the downhill side of the road just slid away. This is not a debris slide down a creek bed like most of the blockages in this area. As you can see, the trees all around here are fine. The rock and tree debris is stuff the forest service piled up to block the road. The blockage is at 48.14602 -121.80266 2100 feet. Looking at CalTopo you can see where some small streams develop on the downhill side of the road. This slide occurred right above one of those streams. My amateur opinion is that the soil of this road reached "field capacity" during the last big rainfall, liquefied like quicksand and then the weight just pulled it down. It was raining really hard when I drove up, and the road felt like I was driving on a waterbed at times. I've never felt anything like it. It made me nervous looking down the steep drop-off's, when the road felt weird like that. When I saw how the road how failed, I decided to drive slowly, and stay pretty close to the inside ditch all the way down. From this blockage to the Three Fingers TH is about 12.25 miles. This adds about 3.5 miles of road walk to the Three Fingers hike.
