I visited the cave this morning about 9AM. All is well. The buildings, scenery (even the flower pots) are just as we left them on Saturday afternoon. There is very little soot or smoke smell.
There is still a hot spot farther up Williams Canyon but the helicopters are dropping lots of water on it and it should be extinguished by this evening.
At this time the officials have said that they will not open Hwy 24 until Monday morning. I doubt they will change their mind so I believe we will not be able to open before Monday.
With that plan in mind Ann & Arron are preparing the schedule for next week with the intention that you will report for your assigned normal duties beginning Monday July2.
Please check back here Saturday or Sunday for further details about when you should report for work and how to get your schedule.
