    NC fire - No camp fires here in Pisgah

    The rangers here in Pisgah posted notices a couple weeks ago at all the official camp sites about No Fires at the camp sites.

    Not sure about all the other areas in NC, but we have not had any rain here in Pisgah since September and that was not much rain either.

    So it's like a tinder box here.

    Just a heads up if you are planning on coming here and doing some camping

    Please, no camp fires
    This place would go up in a big blaze

    Is it still smokey in Pisgah? I was trying to go out a few weekends ago, but a buddy told me that the smoke was making riding pretty challenging.

    No, It's really nice and clear right now

    We have had 2.3 inches of rain in the last couple days, so the trails are a bit soggy here and there.

    Not sure about all the fires and if they went out because I don't watch the news, but I would guess so based on how clear and smoke free it is here in Pisgah
