Clear Creek BLM closing

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has issued an immediate, temporary closure of 31,000 acres of public lands in the Clear Creek Management Area in southern San Benito and western Fresno counties to all public use, and it's probably for a couple of years, said Bureau of Land Management Public Affairs Officer David Christy.

The closure is to protect the public's health and safety from exposure to asbestos, according to the press release. The BLM has closed the area that serves for off-highway vehicle use, hunting, rock climbing and other activities in a response to a human health risk assessment.

Nope. The BLM has been trying to close Clear Creek for quite some time now because of "un-safe" levels of asbesto's that occurs naturally in the area.

Really sad to see this. I was actually planning a trip this summer with the kids. Not to start a medical type discussion, but I was trained to remove asbestos for a summer job many years ago. The asbestos hype is way out of control. I wouldn't hesitate to spend time there...even with my kids.

My Dad has told me some great stories about riding motorcycles down there years ago. Too bad for us who enjoy the outdoors.
