An aside: While living in Oregon in 2017 the legislature there passed a law that it's illegal to eat while driving.
Does that include 'edibles'? :?

Except they wouldn't have to close the nb lanes at all. Same thing. Only one direction closed. But for much less time, and much less effort moving barricades.
You'd be KILLING DPS & ADOT overtime income though..... :)

If the alternative is being closed, I'd prefer they call themselves open and I'll deal with the rest like an adult who enjoys hiking.
I am in strong agreement.

Re: South Rim Trail /Trailhead updates

If one is going to call one's self 'open' - one should be ready, willing and able to accommodate one's 'customers'. Seems to me that Xanterra may be calling the shots, or have a strong hand in it, as most-all of THEIR facets are open and most GCNP facets are not.

Re: Hiking vehicles

I don't think they're going for the Jeep market, because Jeep went after the grocery getter market a long time ago. I see a lot of Jeeps with snorkels that have never encountered more than enough water to hydroplane on the Interstate. Snorkel? Really? I thought they were periscopes to find open par...

Yes to Verizon. Bridge (really a culvert) is Bear Canyon? on FR95. 95 is closed at that point. There is a hiker work-around regarding the trail through the area. 'Proclamation' says closed but we and others are hiking through the closure - just a rubble pile is all. https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/...
