Just an FYI...I approached 3 hikers this morning about 8:30 just inside the gate heading to the OBJ trailhead. One of the hikers was smoking a joint and I told him there was a Stage 2 fire ban and he could not smoke it there. He grinned and replied “really” and took another hit. I had said a few other words. They were packed to camp and this is the only pics I could get on the trail of them.

An amazing quick response from the heliattack crew based out of montrose. Big thanks to USFS for their help
