They were burning it in a controlled burn on Tuesday and it was completely closed at that point, there was a sign at the gate and the ranger made sure to tell me 5 times they were burning Sandpine and to stay away. Maybe he's just talking about the result of the controlled burn?

Hopefully that is all it was. I remember ride Widerness Trails after a prescribed burn, within a week after the burn and it was kinda neet. It was still smouldering but not enough to be a hazzard and you could see alot further than normal. All has grown back now.

I was hoping to have another ride or two with Marcel - this is a tragedy

In case any one is actually confused.  Sandpine is or was (as of last night) closed because of a controlled burn, that remained controlled.  The bigger issue is that Rabbit Ear #2 is still flooded!  I am ready to install a bilge system.  Oh well.  The rest of the trails are sweet.

Just rode Alafia, Sand Pine is closed and extra crispy.  I have not seen the results of a controled burn there before, but it looks alot more substancial than what I see at croom.

Dibs on Marcels reign then  ;D, if he's gone he won't be needing it. Although we should probably bury his single speed with him.
