Charlie the dog reunited with his owner after a high angle rope rescue this afternoon near Deer Creek Canyon. How did he get up there? Well, Charlie’s not saying. Thanks to the rangers for the assist and rattlesnake spotting.

Slow down and move over a lane. Getting past asap may not be possible. Keep your eyes on the road and concentrate on your driving. The comment from was about folks using their cell phones to take pictures. THAT is certainly NOT concentrating on your driving.
