Updated Station Fire Closure (w/ map & text attachments)

May 25th, 2010 / 6 Comments » / by Zé

The Station Fire of August / September 2009 has kept a large portion of the western half of the San Gabriels closed. And it seems like it will stay that way until now allegedly December 2010.

PDF Map

Document with description of closure boundaries

However, there are some previously closed areas that are now open…including the north side of Mt Waterman and the moving the closure line north of the ACH a bit west past the Winston Peak / Winston Ridge area. Additionally, it appears the south border has moved further north in the Monrovia Peak area. I can’t offer specifics as I’ve just glanced at the pdf map at moderate resolution. The text document offers more specifics. Any comments on specific changes are appreciated.
