As life slowly begins to return to something like normal, recreation areas are starting to reopen and people are chomping at the bit to get back into the great outdoors. However keen you may be, though, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is warning that social distancing and public health orders are still in force as an increase of COVID-19 cases is being seen.

The BLM recently announced that recreation within the Alabama Hills of Inyo County, CA is now re-opened to the public. Although excited about re-opening, they do continue to have serious concerns about the risks currently associated with non-essential travel.
PLEASE continue to adhere to the California Public Health Orders, including staying local, wearing face masks whenever interacting with people outside of your household or within business establishments, and continuing to wash your hands frequently. This is not a political plea. We’d be devastated if a surge of new infections requires us to shut down businesses and/or recreation areas again. Thanks for doing your part!
