  Dear Permittees,
  The burnout operations in the area of Mt. Wilson accomplished
the objective of removing extremely heavy fuel.  There is still
smoke in the area as undergrowth burns away.  There are still
hot spots so please be aware of your potentially dangerous
surroundings.  Many parts of the Angeles National Forest are
closed to the general public, including Angeles Crest Highway/
Mt Wilson, with exceptions for permittees with legitimate need
to be in there.
  I have just spoken with the Command Center.  There will be
road access today/Tuesday/Wednesday.
  The access will be:
  o  Angeles Crest Highway/LaCanada - one way in one way out
  o  CHP will allow an orderly entry - so many vehicles per hour
  o  Credentials checked and/or marked vehicles required
  o  Daylight hours only - not later than 6.00pm
  o  No very early/very late communication site traffic - wish
  to avoid substantial Firecrew/CalTrans/DPW traffic.
  Thanks for your patience.

  [Editor's note:  Graham indicates that access to Mt. Harvard
  should be available at this time.  He also expects the travel
  restrictions mentioned above to be further reduced after
  I have the okay to leave [Mt. Wilson] at midnight tonight....
I see someone over at CBS East [and someone else] over at ABC
this evening.
  Two Hot Shot crews are on-site for the overnight.  The
Phos-Chek crews have pulled out as of about 7PM when they
finished dumping all the product they had all over the hill.
  I "look forward" to this winter as I am sure we are going
to have more than a few rock and mud slides.  Thanks again for
helping keep everyone informed!
