SALT LAKE CITY -- Forest Service officials continue to remind visitors to exercise caution while recreating.
Forest visitors need to adhere to road closure signage or blockades. Travelers should not attempt to cross roads where water is flowing across. Parents should keep children and pets away from rivers, streams, and riverbanks. Fast-moving rivers and streams are extremely powerful and dangerous.
Mountain streams will continue to run high through June. Swift, cold rivers and streams pose a serious safety hazard. Forest officials caution people to be very careful. Given the unusual weather and the potential for flooding and slides, conditions can change hourly. Please call local Forest Service offices for conditions before embarking for sites on the Forest or visit http://fs.usda.gov/uwcnf.Full story at:
