Comments:
Called Hebo Ranger Station -- asked why they were putting small boulders and rip rap at end of parking lot in Day Use area. They were unaware of problem -- checked it out -- called me back to say that it was the underlying bed of parking lot eroding into lake. Unfortunate -- it is the only rode I know of on beach in Sand Lake. Wish they would have offered to remove it!
