Following extensive rain damage from heavy downpours in September, a road that had been washed out in the Caja del Rio area in the Espanola Ranger District of the Santa Fe National Forest is now open, Denise Ottaviano, acting public affairs officer Santa Fe National Forest announced in a release. 

Forrest Road 24, an access point to a popular shooting range, is now passable, says the news release, but some potions "remain deeply rutted and rough and require a high clearance vehicle."

"Please tread lightly in this area to prevent further resource damage," says the release, "especially to area roads and adjacent grasslands, which can easily rut.  Avoid driving around ruts which results in habitat destruction, excessive erosion, and unacceptable road damage."
