A beautiful area worthy of protection. Reading through the proclamation it doesn't sound like it will change anything as far as access, just keep further development out....correct?
"Separated from the Río Grande Wild and Scenic River by a broad swath of sagebrush and grassland, the Río San Antonio gorge is another area of concentrated artifact and petroglyph sites. People were drawn to this area by the flowing water, hunting opportunities, and nearby San Antonio Mountain, which is thought to have been a major regional source for the dacite used by nomadic peoples to create stone tools thousands of years ago."
Anyone ever explored the Rio San Antonio Gorge? The old guide book put out by the State of New Mexico in the early 80's described a class III run through it.
