According to Arizona Highways magazine, Forest Road 249 between Big Lake and Alpine is now being paved. You may recall that one of the Arizona Mushroom Club’s forays last summer was along this road, also known as the Three Forks Road.
The job will be finished by next summer, but in the meantime, travelers need to be aware that there may be delays of up to 30 minutes along this road Monday through Friday.
Also, all fire restrictions on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest have reportedly been lifted. Surely this means there has been a good amount of precipitation, and the mushroom season is about to explode….
