Inyo closures updates

Post by mkbgdns » Mon Sep 14, 2020 7:59 pm

got wilderness permit beginning tomorrow 9/15 cancelled, notified by recreation.gov. obviously Inyo extended the previously announced closure (through today). is there a site where Inyo is announcing updates on closure? are they going to walk the closure forward one day at a time, "as conditions change", implying that reopening (wishful thinking) will be announced the day before?

not complaining, they got their hands full, and then some. have no more reservations, but would like to track, with as much lead time as possible, any reopening.

My permit for a trip departing on 18th got canceled and the closure order is extended to 21st. They are probably re-evaluating the situation on a weekly basis. This is a good call as the resources are stretched thin with so many wildfires.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

My permit for 9/24 in Inyo NF got canceled. I don't see an extension beyond 9/21 on Inyo NF website.

I got an email from Recreation.gov saying the closure is extended to 9/24.
