Fire at Guadalupe Mountains National Park

Last week, lightning started a fire in the remote north end of Guadalupe Mountains National Park.  The fire affected small portions of the Dog Canyon area near the trailhead and the small portions of the upper McKittrick Canyon trail, though thankfully Pratt Cabin and the Grotto area were untouched.  Even those areas affected by fire are now open to visitors.  Park staff tells us the Dog Canyon trailhead area (seen here before and after) will green up quickly with the expected summer rains.
