There were two USFS botanists up there, who work out of the Fort Collins office. I spoke with Tom Bates and got his business card. They were up there to scout the area for endangered plants. They are doing a NEPA for a project Xcel is planning for their gas pipeline. Xcel needs to pig out the line, but their pigs can't negotiate some of the 90 fittings employed in the pipe, so those fittings will have to be replaced.

I had not yet seen the damage to the post and cable when I spoke with him, so it wasn't clear whether they or the BRD was aware of the damage either.
