Sheep Rock Unit: Due to heavy rain there were several rockfalls in Picture Gorge on Hwy 26. More are likely. Be on alert for rocks on the roadway.
Painted Hills Unit: Watch for herds of cattle on the road into the Painted Hills from Hwy 26. The dirt road in the unit should be safely passable for all vehicles today, but be alert where puddles collect. Do not try to drive around these wet areas. The shoulder is softer and more hazardous than the road and vehicles will get stuck. Road conditions are expected to return to normal as sun will dry out the clay on the road today.
