Recent rains bring more good news for people who enjoy New Mexico’s outdoor beauty.
The Sandia Ranger District has reopened access to trails in the open space area east of Albuquerque.
“The Sandias have recently received a lot of rain, which has increased the moisture levels in the vegetation to the point where it should limit the spread of any human or natural-caused wildfires,” said forest supervisor Elaine Kohrman.
Heavy rainfall hit most of New Mexico last week.
Forecasters predict the state’s monsoon season is in full swing and more rain is expected.
Despite the moisture, fire danger remains high in the Sandias, Mountainaire, Mount Taylor and Magdalena Ranger districts.
Up to date fire restrictions can be viewed at the forest service website.
