The Silver Fire, in southern New Mexico, started by lightning on June 7, 
now has a perimeter of over 20,000 acres.

The Inciweb site shows the fire area as including nearly all of the CDTS 
route between Emory Pass (or even up to Hillsboro Peak) southward to the 
headwaters of Berrenda Creek.

There is a closure order in effect in the Aldo Leopold Wilderness that 
would prohibit public use along the Divide north of Hillsboro Peak.

CDT hiker use of the affected areas is minimal in this season, but 
southbounders will no doubt note the effects (presumably including 
deadfall) when they pass through in the fall.
