This Weekend on the Pass – July 16, 2021

Alert: The Tamarack Fire just outside of Markleeville has resulted in the cancelation of the Death Ride, mandatory evacuations of Markleeville and the surrounding areas, road closures around Markleeville and the closure of Monitor Pass.  We are wishing and praying for the safety of this community and all the firefighters and personnel working to get a handle on this fire.

From Angels Camp to Markleeville, the weather should be beautiful this weekend.  Enjoy!
