I also sent an e mail to the district office reply site as well, in c/o the dist Ranger.

Where i expressed concerns of:


Impact on recreational activities- Climbing, fishing, camping, cyclists etc.
Importance of the Scenic Corridor- and riparian zone

The canyons advertisements in even the good sam club etc etc- magazines and sites, emphasizing the fact it is well known.

It can even be said its "internationally known" cuz i know some foreigners that have climbed there too..;^)

Well this just sucks. Along with chim we have seen illegal taking of granite over the years in the proposed area illegally. Probably the same people that now want the permit.
Ron I do have LZA on my rebolt list priority one. Ill get it done this spring

A HEARTY THANKS, AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THOSE THAT RESPONDED!


And THANKS to Genny Wilson, Dist Ranger for being responsive to the needs of the users of her Forest....;-)

dam skippy guys,, we made a difference. And the USFS came through with a correct rsponse imho..
She did tell me that several responders thought they would be using machinery etc, and i explained to her that most of us knew the techniques of the harvest yet were still against it for the many reasons. I did tell her about another area that would be far more suitable. She was interested in that and will follow up after the melt. A nice Ranger to talk with really.

If you have the time, a short THANK YOU e mail to the district might be appropriate here..
