    Exclamation Backcountry Fire Ban

    The Park Service has re-instituted the open fire ban for all backcountry camping, again.

    "Due to extreme fire danger, all areas of the backcountry within the boundaries of the national park are closed to any open fires such as campfires. The use of camp stoves and pack stoves is still permitted. This closure is intended to mitigate the potential for human-caused wild land fires."

    I meant to mention this when i was up there last weekend. It amazes me the people that will ignore the ban, though.
