Where did you hear that a park ranger explicitly told him not to go any farther on the road? I haven't heard anything about that.

The Kims were warned that the Bear Camp Road was dangerous this time of year when they stopped into the Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce about 20 miles south of Portland, Ore., on November 25 around 1:30 p.m. PST, Mark Ottenad, executive director of the Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce, said Wednesday.
The employee working that day gave the Kims a copy of the Oregon State Department of Transportation highway map, Ottenad said.
James Kim "asked what would be scenic road and (the employee)highlighted the Agness-Galice Road, but cautioned against trying to travel on that road this time of year," Ottenad said. "Instead, she recommended staying to the main roads--Highway 38 or Highway 42," especially as it was late in the day and it would be dark soon.
I'm not trying to be a jerk, but having an employee at the Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce highlight the route they died on, then "caution against trying to travel on that road" isn't the same as being told not to take the road by a park ranger. In any case, it was a bad idea, and I'm just arguing semantics now, which is a horrible habit of mine.
its cool...I thought it was the Park Ranger..my bad...still not a good idea but not as dumb...
