Icy Conditions on Rist Canyon Road

We have had several reports of the treacherous conditions of Rist Canyon Road in front of "the Ice House" just below Davis Ranch. Since the repaving project this summer, the sun melts snow and ice, allowing it to flow onto and across Rist Canyon Road at this location. Overnight, that moisture freezes into black ice and slush at the beginning of the curve as you drive downhill.

The county has been notified, and they have promised to look into solutions. But in the meantime, the only way to safely navigate this stretch is to slow down to below 20 mph. Please drive carefully!

Lost dog

Our 3-year-old black and tan coon hound, Fred Turbo, got away from me last Wednesday 9/20. He should have a collar on and he has been micro-chipped. We are located at the mouth of the canyon and he could easily travel up. If you have seen him, please call.
