Just got back from South Park / Pleasent Canyon and here are the current road conditions. (Did the loop).
Southpark/Pleasent Canyons - did some moderate damage, but nothing a high clearance 4x4 can't handle.
Goler Canyon - no damage.
High country above Pleasent to Southpark Canyon - perfect condition.
Might add, speaking with Phil (BLM Ranger) we both agreed most flashing flooding took place from Redlands Canyon to Surprise Canyon, below the 3,700-3,900' elevation.
I will be posting pictures of some of the flash flooding tomorrow (Sept 9, 2001).
Off to northern part of DV come Monday....
