Ran it East to West to access Roach Road. The road was in good shape but looks like it could get pretty nasty when wet as there were some pretty deep ruts.

The Mullen Fire near Fox Park, WY more than doubled in size today to over 80k acres. This prompted forest closures along the Colorado / Wyoming border.

The lakes were busier than normal because of the holiday weekend. Conditions were dry but because of the late spring, the area was really lush and colorful for this late in the season. Some gravel road-base was added to the section of road that typically gets muddy. The improvement to the road should help out a ton once the summer monsoon rains begin.
