In case anyone is wondering why things are a bit smokey or black in the Otero and David Canyon areas, there's plans to have a controlled burn near Drop In, Cajun Pine, and West Boundary Trails starting next Monday. This is in the areas where they've been doing fuels reduction for the last few years. There are no formal closures for the area so bring your hotdogs and marshmallows if you want a trail-side BBQ.
