This is a long-standing gripe of mine that you need a lawyer to help you comply with what should be reasonable rules. I noticed last weekend when heading out of Cave Creek toward Horseshoe Lake that the "always closed" ranger station had installed a fee pay station which knocks down one barrier to compliance. But I do have a (senior) America the Beautiful Pass. Do I still need a Tonto Pass to park along Horseshoe Lake Rd. and go for a hike?KBKB wrote:After following a few links, I came across this text: "America the Beautiful Interagency Passes are now only accepted at picnicking sites." So, for the Cave Creek Trailhead, it would work (if it were in fact designated as a fee area), since it's also a picnicking site.
I was thinking more "Baby boomers complaining about minuscule amounts of money and other things they don't like about the world they created".hikeaz wrote:Sounds good! Maybe under the heading 'Government Money Grab"?
That's a good one too! Although it kinda seems 'complainy' in its own right.
