Ok... I'm the one who thought this would be a great idea, so I guess it's time to put up or shut up.

This message from the Sheriff's Office:
Just FYI a 65 year old man in a jeep slid off the mountain in that area today and was air lifted out with life threatening injuries. I think he was on the 25A road. If the FS hasn't closed 201 yet I'm sure they will. Please remind the folks going up there to search to be very cautious.

Regarding our now arriving Arizona winter season for FR201 road access to the Peeley TH and to the Mormon Grove TH via FR25:
As many are aware approximately 1.2mls in from Hwy87 at the FR201 right turn, there is a gate that resides here (that can be closed and locked in winter conditions). Also, approximately 1.2mls up FR201 at it's intersection with FR25 (the left turn road to the Mormon Grove TH) is a second gate (that can be closed and locked in winter conditions) and which can impede any further driving up FR201.
Just FYI: some of us are now working behind the scenes to try and obtain from the responsible authority(s) who decides when "to close and to open" these two above noted gates. As of this posting we are still trying to determine who is that responsible authority. When we do find out, we will try to find a way to be "first informed" as to the impending closure and opening of these gates so as to be able to provide the most accurate FR201 and FR25 driving access to all via a posting on this forum thread.

It's possible that the ranger doesnt want to confirm that information for fear that it will be posted in a public forum on the Internet and subsequently may result in attracting irresponsible yahoos to the area in winter weather, which would likely result in injury and/or additional work for the rangers.
Yes, as long as there is snow, I agree.Tough_Boots wrote:it seems to me like searching in the area might be useless right now. Last I looked, the snow level is at about 5500.
