The Forest service is considering a proposal from a masonry contractor to remove 1500 tons of granite from Cloudburst canyon. (one of these days area) sounds like a smoke show in the making.

Good

They should remove all rocks.

Rocks don't do anything, they're stupid.

Throw them into the ocean.

Make Wall Marts in their place.

Wall Mart has good deals for the American consumer ......

A word of caution Herr Braun, this could cause the oceans to rise, leading to the flooding of the Wallmarts!

Whether this would be good or bad for Americans is left to the readers.


Rock me on the water, we'll get down to the sea somehow.

I hope this doesn't happen, woodfords is a great escape.

Edit: philo, you ever listen to yourself, cause you sound like a f*#kin idiot. I'm against guns, but you're an anti-gun nut.

My guess is they would keep an eye on this for a bit but before you know this will become this guys private stash.

get lost philowwww,, you AINT WERNER....
To which I am sure we are both quite pleased.
Thanks Ron I made $50 on your predictability.


Hey TFPTSD go lick a frozen lamp post.


Seriously now folks if this is important to you y'all best be getting up to date on this proposal and working through channels as early as possible. Let me mention that at one point Eldo was up for sale to a gravel company. Think how tragic that would have been?

Stupid Gravel.

Don't despair gentlemen. They will make new roads, which means easier access to the crags, They will take some rock out, but that's OK. It's just like remodeling, and for Kenny it means an opportunity to put up new routs!

But seriously, I will write to the Forest service to oppose this project.

If its where I think it is ( just downhill from Joyce's store and the CG), that's a pretty dangerous spot for dump trucks to be entering the flow of traffic.

Edit; from what I've been told, that north side is great for rock hounding. Like huge payout great.

I sent an email to Hope Valley Outdoors to keep them in the loop. Good folks, I used to work there.
