It would help if they would provide a map showing the area
instead of a bunch of coordinates. Less chance of an inadverdent violation. Or is this done on purpose in order to generate more money from curiuos violators wanting to see the fire damage to their hunting areas.

I agree. There needs to be a road map put up. I found this: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/ftp/InciWeb/AZASF/20...

I'm not sure how up-to-date it is.

What do you need, them to draw you a picture? Why not just stay home and barbecue under the broiler in your own kitchen? Do you just have to be out in exactly the Gila Wilderness at exactly this time? Just buy a sandwich at Subway and go to the movies in Albuquerque!

Please stay out of harm's way everyone.If you wish to help call to the command centers and volunteer.You can contribute money to your local Red Cross.Call your church and ask if fellow members need a place to stay for awhile.Times like these give everyone a chance to be a better human being and a better Christian.I have seen with my own eyes the love and compassion the citizens of Catron County have for one another when circumstances call for all to come together as neighbors and family.I recall several times it was overwhelming.Give the fire fighters a chance to save the land we so dearly love.Vaya con Dios mis amigos.
