The Wyoming Wilderness Association had to postpone their Gilead Fire hike, which was originally scheduled for this past Saturday. Sheridan Media's Chris Foy has the story.


The Wyoming Wilderness Association recently announced they had to postpone a free hike of the Rock Creek Recommended Wilderness Area - in particular examining damage from last year's Gilead Fire and regeneration that has already taken place.

The hike was originally scheduled for this past Saturday, but the WWA is tentatively considering moving it to Sunday, July 7. Marielle DeJong, who's interning with the WWA this summer, explains what the hike will entail.

DeJong says the WWA was disappointed to have to postpone the hike, but given last weekend's flash flood warning in the area where the hike would have been, it was the right decision. She says fire damage is apparent in the area, but nature is already rebuilding itself.

We'll keep you updated on when the Gilead Fire hike has been officially rescheduled. If you're interested in attending, call the Sheridan chapter of the WWA at 672-2751.
