Glenwood, NM, July 17, 2018—For Immediate Release. If you have the Catwalk National Recreation Trail and Whitewater Picnic Area as part of your travel plans this week, the Glenwood Ranger District needs for you to be aware of a "Watch Out" situation.

The three-person seasonal trail crew assigned to the Glenwood Ranger District will be working in the area above the final viewing platform. They are clearing out rocks, boulders, and clearing the trail for more optimal hiking opportunities. While the crew is working, there is the possibility of rocks or boulders rolling down the trail. Erick Stemmerman, Glenwood District Ranger said: "The crew will be there for the better part of this week. This could be a hazardous situation for either the public or the trail. We want our visitors to 'watch out' for themselves and the crew."

Seedboat Gallery will be closing July 29, 2018. Please join us for a Closing Reception on July 20, from 4 pm to 8 pm.

Glenwood, NM, July 17, 2018,—The Gila National Forest, Glenwood Ranger District is lifting the Willow Fire Temporary Area Closure lifted effective 12:00 a.m. on July 18, 2018.

Please use caution in any area that has been recently burned. Rolling rocks are always a hazard in a burn area as monsoon rains may loosen materials that may be holding them. Footing can be tricky and this area has seen several fires. Trails may have hazardous trees whose root systems have been weakened by fire. Often, burnt branches and tops fall from these trees and could cause serious injury or death. Always be aware of your surroundings, watch your footing and look out for hazards.
