Canyonlands Flash Flood Damages Roads and Trails

The National Park Service has some details on the August 19th flash flood that took out the Mineral Bottom road:

Also many backcountry roads in the Needles District are closed as well, but no damage assessments are posted as yet. The JPG photos of the Mineral Bottom damage are incredible.

Just put it in LOW and make the hairpin a bit tighter than normal.
