Closing trails is silly for that reason because those that want to crash the party won't be stopped by something like that...they'll just sneak past the sign/checkpoint/whatever is there to stop people... In the meantime, people that just want to be out on the trails are being deprived...

That's why if you do try hiking in there, you'll see the security guys in camo shirts and olive cargo pants; they'll have radios with antennae that look like fly rods, amunition in their vests and a weapon in their lumbar gear pack. The dead give away though will be the rubber brookies hanging from their rods.

Default Presidential visit?

They usually don't set up that kind of security for just a governor, park administrator, or even Secretary of the Interior. Makes me think the big O (or just Biden) will be there. In that case the level of security is justified. A visit like that could definitely generate some publicity which could help tourism in the area (which makes the streams more crowded, but I'm all for it in this economy).

Default Trail Closures

I don't like it, but am surely not surprised. I just hope they don't show up again until the 100th.
Thanks for the heads-up Sam.

Smile Thought I would bump since it's coming up this week

I was thinking Road Prong again on WEd, but I guess I'll have to go somewhere else.
