    Default chitina road

    How is the road to the canyon? Did it wash out again or is it passable by four wheeler?

    Not certain but am contemplating doing a quick check drive down this weekend. Not any accurate word on the road(that I've heard) so would be good to get a first hand idea and would be good to get some photos to share. Though it cann't be worst than last year after the 100 year rain event, and that was improved only by Alaskan's sweat and hand labor. Last year there was a lot of people who did work on the road themselves to improve it to a drivable 4-wheeler trail to experienced drivers. Seems odd that the State is so completely withdrawn from activity on the road which links Alaskan's to their resources and people are reduced to picks, shovels and chainsaws.

    It's not odd at all.

    It's par for the course.

    The state was built with picks and shovels, not by government burocrats. Add in some urban/native rift and no way you'll get anyone in Juneau to give two cents about the issue.
