This is part of an email I received, as many others may have also. Sounds as if trail cleanup will be massive as well as doing anything to the chalet.
"The trail to Sperry Chalet is currently closed and is impassable, as are other trails in the Sprague Fire area. Nearly 2,000 trees fell across trails as a result of the fire, and the park estimates that another 1,000 may come down across trails this winter. The standing hazard trees are considered very hazardous, and trail crews will begin work in the spring to address remaining trees that have not fallen as a result of winter snow."

Just so nice to see the temporary shoring in place. Hoping now that winter is kind to our old friend.
