As posted already, the Sandia Ranger District is now in Stage 1 fire restrictions. For mountain bikers that doesn't really mean too much. What I am asking is that folks keep an eye out for any fire on the district. Specifically, we have problems with unattended campfires in the Cedro area. Under our current restricitons, campfires are only permitted in designated areas (which means designated recreation sites, Cedro/Otero it's prohibited).

If you see a campfire attended or not, give us a call at the district (505) 281-3304 during buisness hours. Off hours, call my cell phone (505) 250-5972 and leave a message if I don't answer. If all else fails, call non-emergency 798-7000 and report the fire.

Thanks for the help!
