so you all know black canyon of the yellowstone already has a trail the entire length of the canyon..as does most of the runs have roads next to them. what more would be impacted on Black Canyon, Lewis river or Fire Hole? people swim in the firehole in mass groups everyday through the summer. Yellowstone isnt all walk in the park class 3 there some legit runs that wouldpoliced by the difficulty it self. if they did a 100 dollar fee a year to maintain the "damage" we are causing id throw it down to boat that place. i wouldnt have to go to NW ever

This was a quote from my facebook page where several people got in a debate on allowing snowmobiles in national parks.

"Oh .... I see..... because you upper crusters don't use motors your better than the rest of us?"

This has got to be the first time in history that kayakers were called "upper crust"

Time to celebrate a new social status!!

HA...a couple dumbass snowmobilers from WI will be happy to hear this. Although it won't matter since they think they need a passport to leave the state.

Don't pit it as us vs. them.
Same BS I hear about snow mobile access everywhere. When You make it an us vs them scenario, you pollute the real issues at stake. I'm all for moderate snowmobile access to the national parks. Do I need to be guided, probably not, but in Yellowstone, that is the ONLY way you are going to get to snowmobile. So, Do we want guided access to kayaking? You put it out there on the same terms, and that is what we will get. Tourist kayaking in Yellowstone to match tourist snowmobiling in Yellowstone. Guide will tell you it's dangeroud and remote and take you on a class 3 with people from Ohio and Texas (not to bag on Ohio).

Signed....

Relax. No one is pitting anything. Just a funny facebook qoute from some old high school friends. No need to get take up arms.

One of 2 CL V canyon's on the Yellowstone. Easily dozens if not hundreds of CL I-V+ runs in the park. Dozens of unrun but clean waterfalls.



To be clear, this isn't an impact of kayakers issue or a safety issue. It's a bureaucratic issue dating back to before whitewater was even on the map. Rivers were getting over fished by float fisherman so floating streams was made illegal. The bureaucracy is very entrenched now.

JD, I'm mellow. At the same time, lets not make this an exclusive club. That is what we are against in the first place. I've seen some great runs and drops that i would love to hit.
