How Federal Shutdown Affects Color Viewing
This week’s shutdown of federal facilities has not limited fall color viewing on most federal lands. Only areas with gated admission, such as national parks, have been closed. U.S. Forests and BLM lands remain largely open, though services are – for the interim – not available. Since federal offices are closed, it’s not possible to get answers to whether a land area remains open or not. This site and our Facebook page will carry reports of closures, as received.
