I'm camping south of Mt. Columbia starting tomorrow for 5 days. Like an idiot, I completely forgot to check if there are any fire restrictions in that wilderness area, and also whether the small streams running between Columbia and Yale are ok to filter from for drinking water (I've been to Colorado dozens of times, and know that many streams are tainted with arsenic in this region).
Forest ranger won't be in again until Monday, so I need a quick response this weekend.
Thanks ahead of time!
