The forest service opened 143 from the Tonto Basin to the Lone Pine TH. I don’t like to be dramatic, but it’s bad. Very bad. Simply everything is destroyed. Very, very few pockets of pine trees still exist. From SR-188 through the 12 miles to Lone Pine TH, I saw one small group of pine that was intact. While Fire typically burns in Mosaic patterns, this one burned probably 90% of the wilderness. Of that 90%, probably roughly 80% was high intensity just by what still exists. Fortunately, the manzanita is regrowing, but this area will need extensive restoration efforts for years ahead to return somewhat to what it was before. The road seems repaired & re-graded up to the Lone Pine Road. The road was pretty rough. High Clearance recommended. I did not do much more than 500’ of the Brown’s Trail since the TNF still has a closure order.
