I agree with Aaron, a lack of understanding of kayaking, matched with mis- appropriation of funding for bigger parking lots at Old Faithful and less for backcountry education is only one challenge we face. Its a similar issue with regard to the discontinuation of winter maintenance through the East Gate in the winter. Officials have a skewed concept of liability and risk assessment. However, I think we should be careful what we wish for. Whoever said in an earlier post that the park should be managed as a wilderness is right, but its a pipe dream, the place is a theme park and I feel so jaded by that that I seldom go into the park for an extended period of time even though it is literally my back yard. Commercial outfitting already exists in the park and even though outfitters may not be interested in the same runs we as kayakers are, it still opens the door for even more commercialization of the park. I say this even as a business owner that would stand to gain from opening more boating in Yellowstone...
