Even with the Sil- ver Fire burning in the Biack Range Mountains and the Aldo Leopold Wilderness located on the southeastern part of the For- est, flae remainder of the 3.3 mil- lion acre Forest offers a diversity of recreation opportunities• "The Forest is big and offers scenic drives, camping, picnick- ing, backpacking, hiking and wildlife viewing," says Forest Supervisor Russell• Visitation to the Gila Wilderness and the Blue Range Wilderness can be en- joyed as well as a visit to the Forest's three lakes e.g. Quemado Lake, Lake Roberts, and Snow Lake. Pueblo Park Campground offers a quiet place for overnight camping ps well as campgrounds north of Silver City in the Pines Altos Mountains. The National Park Service's Gila Cliff Dwell- ings National Monument and the campsites along the Gila River are also open. A picnic next to Whitewater Creek among the cot- tonwoods apd sycamores at the Catwalk National Recreation Area can also be enjoyed• Due to the Silver Fire activ- ity and concerns for public safety, as of this past Sunday, June 23rd, the entire Aldo Leopold Wilder- ness and adjoining forest lands to the south, southeast, and to the eastern boundary of the Forest will be closed to all public entry until further notice• See attached map. NM State Highway 152 re- mains closed between . San Lorenzo and Kingston. NM State Highway 61. from its junction on NM 152 to U.S. Highway 180 is open, as well as the access route to La Esperanza Vineyard and Winery located six miles sout~e east of the junction of NM i'5~ and NM 61 off County Road G3- 77, Royal John Mine Road. Past the access road to the winery, the Royal John Mine Road remains closed• By practicing aggressive fire prevention during Stage I fire restrictions currently in place, visitors can still enjoy the Forest safely. Campfires are allowed in developed campgrounds and pic- nic areas in Forest Service-pro= vided grills or metal fire rings, but not outside these areas or in rock rings. Petroleum-fueled stoves, lantern or heating devices are ac- ceptable provided they meet the fire underwriter's specifications for safety. Smoking is limited to a vehicle, building, or 3-foot area cleared of all flammable materi- als. Fireworks are a big no-no and never allowed on Forest Service lands. "People who choose to have a fire where campfires are allowed will still need to be extremely careful," Russell said. "In particu- lar, make sure your campfire is dead-out before you leave."
