    Hey Folks,
    North Fork Road was drive-able to Chamberlain's Ranch today in a four wheel drive Ford E350 van.

    The worst parts are quite sloppy and muddy. 4WD recommended.

    Locations of the worst spots of the road (from South to North):
    1. Immediately North where Birch Hollow meets N.F. Road
    2. North of the Orderville T.H. where Orderville meets the N.F. Road (long, downhill pitch when driving North)
    3. North of where the North Fork of the Virgin crosses the N.F. Road. (uphill pitch when you drive North)

    Storm System will likely bring rain to the area next Tuesday / Wednesday.

    Reporting,
    Dave

    For what it's worth, was up the KTR this afternoon. Zero snow anywhere below 6900' (aside from under a bush or two); road clear all the way past WCTH to where the aspen grove starts.

    To correlate, NFR is all below 7000', so I assume there wouldn't be much; unless the easts side got shwacked harder than the west. Of note also are the high hills on the NFR's east side that will likely be melting for a while, keeping the road wet...
