Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

During my career we would respond only to be canceled by the Sheriff's Dept. after we arrived at the trailhead and told to leave though the Sheriff's Dept. had not arrived yet. The times we did get the go was when it was usually above 105, Pizza Oven Hike.
