A Letter To the Editor

Submitted by Lavern Chuilicek


To the Editor:

In reference to the road closures by the forest service.  It is management or control? A tank trap or gate is so close to the approach you cant park one vehicle much less a horse trailer. If a gate or tank trap is placed any where but the beginning of a road you cant walk by the gate. Is it possible to make these road closures user friendly without the forest service leaving ugly notes on the gate? From the outside looking in the forest service management  is not very people friendly, as I drive around I see other areas marked for tank traps, has this become the kings forest?
