I later moved my family to Moab, where we resided for many years. It is a travesty to see the proposal to “lock up” more of the lands to appease someone opposed to others enjoying the pleasure and freedom to enjoy what has been given to them to enjoy.
More control over the ability to walk down a canyon or to climb out onto a rim and enjoy the view of the Colorado River seems rather foolish to me. I hope this never happens as I hope to return to Moab to enjoy my old age.
