Canal Creek Rd – Closed for now

Canal Creek Campground is closed for the winter (as usual).  But we check on it regularly.  We got up to mile 3 on the road to the campground today.  We could tell it’s been a long week for the people who are clearing this road.

I couldn’t get a clear shot, behind the trees, of the water falling down this steep canyon.  But last week’s storm just scoured this canyon down to the bedrock.

There is a long stretch of mudslides on the road.

This is as far as we go today.

Still about a mile away from the campground.  We’re not sure when the crews will get back here.  They are pretty busy everywhere.  Sure hope no one was trying a little free camping that night!
