Apache Sitgreaves is open, except for the areas around the Rodeo-Chedeski fire. Mt. Baldy, Escudilla and etc. are ok....Both hikes are over 10k and very nice. The original Los Dos Molinos (aka "hotter than Olesma's") restaurant is in Springerville, just across from the Circle K on Highway 60, which is an additional bonus.
Map showing open/closed areas is at their website at http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/asnf
Be careful with the bears, as their food sources are scarce thereabouts. There is probably no truth to the rumour that they are all headed to the fire area with bottles of hot sauce chanting some little jingle about their "Baby-Back Ribs", as most of the elk probably got away...
BTW, just spoke with Peaks Ranger District (Flag), whining about how I was too fat to hike at 112 here, and too cheap to buy a gym membership to exercise somewhere with A/C. There was some notable rain there yesterday. The Ranger said to call back Friday before charting a course to Springerville (oh, please, oh, please..)
