Niagra & Jones

Ron Cunning, Gary Doyle, Dorothea Frohner, and I had a successful trip up
these two peaks on Saturday, 7/29. Conditions were totally dry in the upper
basin and trail was visible all the way to the top. If you plan to do these
peaks in the near future, please note that NO CAMPING is being allowed the
full west side of Silverton on 586. Signs indicate camping is closed
secondary to extreme fire danger. The usual campsite at Eureka is closed to
all camping and signs are posted along all trailheads for NO CAMPING. The
town is hearding all camping to the South Mineral Camp Ground west of town at
the Junction of 550 and 585 (trailhead to Vermillion/Pilot Knob, etc.) Once
crossing over to the east side of Cinnamon Pass, however, you can camp
wherever you like (American Basin is open for camping). By the way, I was
able to get over Cinnamon Pass in a Rav 4.....so go for it!
