Langley via OAP - Oct 18, 2020 #58173 10/27/2020 8:01 PM

Oct 18 - We drove up Horseshoe Meadow around 4am, started on Cottonwood trail 430am. Clear sailing up to Old Army, really pristine day. Slow going with the newbies. I left them at the lake below OAP. I went off trail up OAP and found a fun, 15 minute-long class 3 shortcut up some sturdy rock. Hooked up with meandering plateau trail, past the giant cairns, and reached the final summit wall. Decided to turn around...mostly, I didn't want to leave the newbies alone for too long (yes, they're adults!). On our return, which was a VERY long slog with the newbs, I noticed a "Trail Closed" sign strung across the path maybe 200 yards from the lot; it wasn't there when we departed earlier that morning. There was a fire smoldering southwest of Langley, which I assume was the Creek Fire...but it was quite a distance from us. A memorable/pristine day.

The John Muir Wilderness within Inyo National Forest is open again. Forest Order 05-04-50-20-21 supersedes Forest Order 05-04-50-20-20, which closed JMW within INF through December 31. 05-04-50-20-21 leaves just about everything outside the Creek Fire area open.
