It is the same old thing, a few spoil it for the many. As we allow more people to move into our area the more trash and crime come along with them. There is less respect for everything lately.

Something needs to be done to re-distribute the volume to specific trailheads. I would rather have seen the FS actively encourage users to head to other sites, though.

Just another sign that Bend, (CO) is changing for the worst. Bend spent years trying to get people to move here, well...they got their wish.

I love our wilderness. I don't want the government restricting my access.

More passes, rules, regulations, and reservations are making it harder to go out on a hike or head out, hiking/camping, on a whim. A permit/reservation is making spontaneity a thing of the past

Do you think the state should require property owners to create defensible space?

To much government control is a bad thing

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

And if my neighborhood burns because of the inadequately insured slob next door . . .

Grew up in the Midwest. The local storms are wimpy compared to those!

I love thunder and lightening! Don't like the fires though but do like the rain. Always on the front porch with my granddaughter whenever a thunder storm rolls in
