Many in northeast Wyoming will take to the Bighorn Mountains this weekend for the Labor Day holiday. The fire danger remains extremely high on the Bighorn National Forest, which has prompted forest officials to offer a reminder to anyone looking to spend some time on the mountain. BHNF Public Affairs Specialist Susie Douglas explains the Stage 1 fire restrictions that remain in effect on the National Forest.
Although people are encouraged to enjoy the National Forest during the holiday weekend, Douglas says that they need to keep in mind how dangerously dry it is throughout the forest.
