The first three-day weekend with nice weather is coming up! The temps will be in the 80's and the crowds heading out of town for a much-needed break. Heads up: Not all of your favorite camp sites will be open. 

Sawtooth National Forest is open. At the higher elevations, many trails and roads will be closed. If you see a road closure sign, you are advised to stop there as they are placed due to a road, bridge or culvert washout. Bottom line: You don't want to be underwater.
