    I went Tuesday and it was open. Had a lovely morning. Fire restrictions might be be in effect; maybe bring a shovel and fire extinguisher or water.

    I was there yesterday. It was open. We did have a couple interruptions with a dump truck and tractor coming in to grab some boulders but they were in and out and promised they wouldn't interrupt us anymore after their second trip. I did see the forest service fire truck making rounds but they didn't stop to check if we had shovels or extinguishers or water...

    Also... pick up after yourself. There were four other parties coming and going while I was there and only one of them policed their brass and shells. We left with far more than we brought. Do your part.

    I went out on the 18th and the Quarry was closed, as it was being used to make gravel for the roads up there. No idea when it might be open again.

    As a heads up, you are required to have a shovel, axe, and extenguisher or water in your rig if you are on the dirt roads out in the forest per fire regs right now.

    Make sure its a real shovel, I believe the length has be at least 4 feet, no folding shovels. Also a real axe not a hatchet and at least a gallon of water.

    I set out my shovel/axe/water and fire extinguisher next to my truck before picking up trash. I've only used the water once to put out some shotgun shells that someone raked up, set on fire, and left. Sunday I only had to clean up 1 1/2 contractor bags of crap. Two weeks ago the area was actually pretty clean. Seems to be getting better there.
