Hello my fellow buzzards
It seems the U.S. senate on thursaday passed a bill that appears to allow for sale of wilderness lands.
I am unsure how I feel about this.....I oppse the creation of more wilderness as most know.
I do not (at least yet) support the selling off of wilderness lands.
At this point, I would prefer the land stay federal, with significant use restrictions.....but I do think the current restrictions are to tight, especially in limiting the hands of environmental land mangement.
I leave for moab for the week today. I look forward to reading thoughtful comments on this hot bottom subject when I return
Lets all respect those whos views are different on this subject !
