PUBLIC LANDS -- While national forest lands are still accessible during the federal government shutdown, facilities are not, including a twist I had not thought about in my previous posts:

"One addendum to your blog about facilities affected by the gov't shutdown," writes Aaron Thiessen of Spokane:"Forest Service (and other federal) rentals are closed, too.

"I just got a call that our reservation for this weekend at Snyder Guard Station has been canceled until further notice."
