[cdt-l] Fires

Last we heard, the folks at Benchmark had been allowed to return, and since 
it has rained and snowed almost every day since, I think the Scapegoat fire 
is out.

Don't forget the fire at Glacier NP - the fire started at Red Eagle Lake, so 
the campsites are gone and the trail was closed from near Reynolds Creek to 
Triple Divide Pass.  It is likely to still be closed next spring, and 
possibly next fall.
