That editorial made me cringe. What a load of bs. As if having the road open means people will be driving all over the Wilderness area... There are so many roads that go through areas just as pristine and there are zero problems with off-route travel.

We should compile a list of similar passes and roads that travel above timberline where there are no issues.

Mosquito Pass
Weston Pass
Argentine Pass
etc.

Good point Martin, yes, it is interesting and frustrating to see that kind of stuff in print. the comments below are semi heartening though.

I hope folks can try to make it no matter where they recreate or live, the more that are there the bigger the influence.

I'd be weary of pointing out other roads that traverse Wilderness areas or cross the tundra, you might hand them more data for the next MVUM.

I disagree. It disproves their whole argument.

How about Mt. Evans? A cherry stemmed, heavily travelled highway right into the heart of a Wilderness area.

On my calendar as well, I have some green birkenstocks I could wear, if that would help.
