PCT Fire Threat

Section H of the Washington PCT is threatened with closure  due to the Cascade Creek Fire.   Section H is 147 miles from Bridge of Gods to White Pass, which Freestyle is hiking right now.

Section H - Mt. Adams Fire (Cascade Creek Fire)
"9-12-12 - The PCT is not currently closed due to the Cascade Creek Fire on the south side of Mt. Adams. The closed area borders the PCT on the east. It runs along the PCT from Road 23 to Round-The-Mountain Trail #9. Please do not camp along this stretch of trail. Check for updates in case the fire and fire closure grows, which is possible, if not likely. 
Afternoon update: Within the next 48 hours, this closure is likely to grow to include the PCT. The new closure will probably extend from Road 23 to Riley Creek near Sheep Lake. The alternate route would include walking Road 23 northwest to Burnt Rock Trail #64 to rejoin the PCT north of Riley Creek. Please call the Mt.Adams Ranger District Office at 509-395-3400 for more information before entering the area. "
