    This was brought up in another thread but I thought I'd post it here for perhaps a wider audience. If you were planning on doing the Dragon in the near future, you'll need to rethink your itinerary since a rock slide has temporarily closed access to it.

    Was looking forward to riding this in June. Guess my vacation plans just altered slightly.

    I saw that on TV the other day - and we wonder how drivers can claim they don't see us - this guy plows into a giant pile of rocks!!!

    We share the road with people like this every day. It's a wonder how we survive!!!

    But, it does make for great entertainment value on Youtube. Just hope I never become part of the entertainment.

    He was perhaps busy sending a text just to busy to look out the window and see there was no more road

    Apparently, the road is open. I believe April 12th or 13th.
