Road Update #2 and Big Creek Photos, 1/23/17
Paul’s Slide has gotten worse, so if you could reach it, no escorts are being allowed. Here are a number of photos of the Big Creek Slide by Dave Nelson, Thomas Leahy, David Halterman, and Mark Readdie. This is not going to be opened up anytime soon. This notice below is what Cal Trans sent out, but I heard from a local that a couple people from Esalen got through 35. Only way out for some people.
