Default Well now...

Last time I got a meaningful response from a Senator was Ben Nighthorse-Campbell regarding the closure of FDT1135 trail... well, this one beats that all to heck.

In March I emailed Sen. Salazar about Boulder Wagon Road and Rollins Pass, citing the need to have these wonderful areas preserved as historic routes, open (with strict controls) to 4x4 access, and with interpretive markers, signs and engraved photos of the railroad and people of the area. This would be in cooperation with the USFS, the Rollins Pass Restoration Association, and the Rollinsville Historical Society that just got started, as well as Gilpin and Grand counties (and Boulder county if they ever see the light). I also stressed the need for increased funding for the USFS land management and trails budgets.

I just got a great phone call from Michael Amodeo with Ken Salazar's office. Sen. Salazar is responsive to my concerns about forest funding, including wildfire management, and is interested in environmentally responsible projects that allow access for those who can't hike for a week to see these wonderful sights, and which are sustainable, and was very interested in our restoration work at Yankee Doodle Lake.

I look forward to further conversations. Now howz 'bout THEM apples?

Very

Especially to actually get a phone call instead of the typical canned letter response!

That's awesome!

I hope there will be some follow-up and action to make something happen.

Thanks for taking the initiative Bill.
