Land Management Policy

Post by tdwood » Sep 11 2017 12:34 pm

I read an article in last Sunday's local fish wrap ("Trail represents new age of experiencing Colorado 14ers", Arizona Republic, Sept. 10, 2017) about the efforts of the Rocky Mountain Field Institute to reroute trails in Colorado's "Fourteeners" region. The argument for the practice cites safer trails and protection of sensitive flora. The author notes, anecdotally, that some feel this sort of management equates to "dumbing down the mountains."

What do you think? The new normal? The wussification of wilderness?

Discuss.

Apparently this has a chance only because it potentially helps a couple Western state R senators hold on to their seats. Best result for people who weigh environmental stewardship over development is that the bill passes but the scheme fails.
