1. When visiting this area.
For those not familiar with the environment, I'd suggest two things. Do not visit this marker during the winter months if you're not prepared for it. This road is particularly vulnerable to heavy snow drifts. If you decide to visit in the late spring, early summer, be aware of the "greenhead flies", they bite hard.
