I would assume from this that you feel that anyone with physical limitations should be excluded from enjoying these areas. That sounds awfully elitist! Since it takes money to operate the governement agencies that administer these lands, why not open up a limited number of permits to the highest bidder? Of course you should also have to provide medical proof of excellent physical condition (don't want medivac choppers disturbing the wilderness!). I've seen plenty of damage from thoughless hikers shortcutting trails. I agree with those that feel mother nature can and will do more damage in one storm than those of us that treat the land with some respect.
