 The past week’s numerous storms have brought more than a foot of snow to the La Sal Mountains and an inch and a half of rain to the Moab area. A forest service team doing fieldwork on the eastern side of the mountains reported that the snow was “thigh deep” in certain places. A week ago, mountain bikers could ride the Whole Enchilada trail, but now Burro Pass is buried in white stuff.
 A rockslide during heavy rainfall on the morning of Oct. 4 forced the closure of Highway 128 for about an hour. After a relatively quiet Oct. 5, more rain saturated the region Oct. 6-8. According to the National Weather Service, the widespread storm affected all of eastern Utah and western Colorado, closing Vail Pass on Interstate 70 for a few hours Sunday.
