One Response to Round-Up: CO's Roadless Plan, and Cripple Creek District Museum Gets Recognition

  1. Matt H says:

    Roadless area designations don’t help anyone or anything. Colorado would be one big tumbleweed if it weren’t for the gold that rolled down from the mountains on roads. Declaring any land in the state “Roadless” is a slap in the face of history. The invention of the wheel was an important moment in Human cultural development. Roads are older than the wheel. Declaring areas with roads “Roadless” is a failure of a magnitude only Uncle Sam could create. Public lands are there for the public to enjoy. How can people enjoy them without roads?
