Help blow up a Wilderness Poll

X posted from pirate.


Local newspaper has a Poll to see who supports the latest wilderness bill threat.

There is an article link at the top of the page and the Poll is at the bottom.

I don't have pics of boobs, just a worth while vote.

Say NO to Hidden Gems.

I lot of these pics were taken by me last year from some of the trails this bill would close to Jeeps forever. http://www.myprojectjk.com/200809crested.html

I'll do what I can.

What a beautiful place, it would be a shame if it were cut off for good.

BTW Alec great pics......... I recognized this because my wife has built that puzzle. I had no idea where it was.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

The Crystal Mill is ok but there is a trail system that starts a mile or so past it that's on the chopping block.

Right now you can drive from marble or Aspen to Crested Butte. The bill would close those trails to everyone except hikers. Im an avid hiker but youd have to backpack for 30 miles and that is too much for my old ass. Anyone with any type of disability would simply not have a chance.

Yeah that would truly be a loss.

And yeah that's what I meant "the place is beautiful" as in your other other nine or ten pics of the area. I just recognized the mill from the puzzle

I can't find the actual list of trails but I'm pretty sure Lead Kind, Schofield, Taylor, Peal Pass, were all on the list.

This weeks online poll has been pulled as a result of voter efforts to stuff the ballot box, so to speak.
HaHa, They didn't like the results.

I'm sure it would have been fine if the results worked in their favor.
