I feel the same way you do. Maybe things will change soon and those of us that know respect for gods great green earth can still go out and see it the way we want.I dont want to make a big debate on this subject,but some people really need to get a grip on there lives and then look at issues from both sides.
I have been up that canyon twenty plus times and can tell you that 4x4's do not do any type of the damage that they say they do.and I am saying that as a hiker.(I hiked it for years before I ever drove my truck up the canyon)
The only reason I started driving up was because I started watching some of the jeeps as they would do it and I could see that they were not doing any harm.There have been studies done during some of the bigger events on the canyon and they all said the same thing.
I will agree with the no new roads idea but a road that has been used for over one hundred years should be left as a road to be used for another hundred.
Just my 2 cents
Hiking or driving...Happy Trails(as long as there's a trail left to travel)
