Seeing as Kneeland School is snow-closed this morning, you might be inclined to head up that thar hill and have yourself some sleddin’ time.
Stop. No. That snow is mostly not your snow, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office reminds us once again. Respect their authority in the press release below:
The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind those looking for fun in the snow that the Kneeland-Greenwood Heights area is primarily all private property. Snow seekers should utilize the Horse Mountain, Six Rivers National Forest areas for recreational activity. If you do plan to recreate in the snow, please notify family and friends of where you are going and bring appropriate safety equipment in case you become lost, injured or stuck. Make sure your cell phone is charged if you bring one with you and have appropriate winter clothing.
Please remember trespassing is a crime and trespassers could be subject to citation or arrest.
