I wonder how many years of constant 4wd use it would take to cause the same damage as the 1984 flash flood that washed out the road in Surprise?
Seems like 4wd vehicles hardly leave a footprint in comparision. Not to mention the area is virgin wilderness... oh wait... there has been a road to the mining camp up there for over a hundred years.

If the CR Briggs open pit mining plan, cutting across multiple (possible future) 'Wild and Scenic' canyons, is "No Impact" in the eyes of the BLM, how can a handful of 4wds driving up the old road in the canyon each year be illegal?

I agree completely with Pat.
