While we appreciate the right to opinions on the covering of our faces during this pandemic, we do ask that you leave Smokey the bear alone. His masks have been removed a couple times by someone(s). Thank you as always to the community by helping follow the public health orders currently in place. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello Highway 135 Travelers! Big next couple of days for us! Tomorrow, Monday July 20, 2020...we will be taking a large herd of mommas and babies up the road. We will start in the afternoon, and will be on the road between mile marker 23 (Hidden River) and Riverland. This is a big one folks. We will do our best to keep them off the entire road, but you will all need to be especially patient. The following morning, Tuesday July 21, 2020, we will take this same herd up the Brush Creek road. We will head out early...with the hope of being off the road before 10 am. Again...this is a big group, and we will use a lot of space on the road. We need you to just slow down, be safe, and enjoy the ride!! ... See MoreSee Less
