Lucky us, our hike schedule puts us in Salida for the Brewers Rendezvous! Already have tix and hotel lined up.
We are monitoring the fires and current trail closure (as it stands today we would have to end our hike in Silverton) but there's not much else we can do about it. We are still at least 1.5 months away from approaching that area and things will have changed a lot by then. If there is a fire that is going to affect our hike it probably hasn't started yet.
