    Any condition reports on the North Fork road to Chamberlain Ranch? I know the storms have been rolling through so it's ever-changing. The Narrows are gearing up for packraft season...

    FWIW: Smith Mesa road from Monkey Mesa to the KTR is fully dry and clear of mud, even the last mile near the KTR where it gets a lot of shade and extra snowmelt. Have found them to be a somewhat reasonable comparison given their relatively similar elevations (SMR 5600', KTR 6600'). A thousand feet can surely make a difference, no doubt. Just sayin'.

    Also, the KTR is free of snow up to Wildcat at least, also a feasible comparison (7000', though not mud).

    It'll be packraft season, just a matter of where and when.

    Never in pre-COVID times was the need for a "Dislike" button so pressing.
