SFNF Urges Extreme Caution On Rio Chama

SFNF News:

SANTA FE – As recreationists head into the Santa Fe National Forest for the long Memorial Day weekend, rafters, campers and others traveling along the Rio Chama should be prepared for higher-than-normal water levels and faster-than-normal flows on the river.

Fortunately, none of the 25 identified campfires sparked or spread before they were discovered and extinguished. 

But we might not be so lucky this year. As the New Mexico fire season gets underway, it’s important to remember that unattended campfires are the leading human cause of wildfire.
