The thread regarding the pinned dory took me to the RRFW site- where I read the article about the threat of gas mining having a MAJOR impact on the area around Desolation Canyon. If you haven't already read about this, have a look at River Runners for Wilderness - Protecting the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and Its Tributaries
I was unaware of the situation (other than the obvious presence of gas piping, etc. on the way to the put-in, and would like to think that my 1-year old daughter will have the opportunity to run trips on Deso and enjoy it in more or less the same condition as it is today- but that is clearly threatened. I'm upset that I missed the 5/1/08 deadline for submitting public comment- does anyone have info on either
a) when any type of a resolution will be reached
b) what else can be done?
