Status Update
I called Ouray County Road & Bridge today to get info about Camp Bird Road to the lower YBB TH.

Plowing began on Wednesday and should be done by the middle of next week.

They said NO vehicle traffic until the road is clear.

They HIGHLY ADVISED AGAINST pedestrian traffic until the road is clear.

Apparently a hiker almost got run over by a bulldozer during last years plow.

They also said the plow process sometimes triggers avalanches.

Long story short, wait just a little longer for lower trailhead access to Yankee Boy.
