Illegal Campfires

were rampant yesterday. Maybe that why I saw USFS LE officer Roberta  for the first time in years. She was at the bottom of Plaskett when I saw her. Maybe she got up To Prewitt last night or today. As I told her, people are absolutely crazy this year. What part of this sign don’t you get?

I count five. I don’t get it.

oh, and while I am ranting … What in the heck was MoCo Weekly thinking in publishing an article on hiking the Buckeye Trail down here which encourages campfires, even thourgh the writer mentioned the drought and lack of water in the area? Bad, bad idea, people! That intern needs to be educated, as do her editors and publishers, apparently. Please contact MCWeekly and call them on their irresponsible reporting.

  1. Can’t access the article..maybe they got the message..

  2. WE NEED MORE AND BIGGER SIGNS !!! I WOULD ACTUALLY BE OK WITH TWO BILLBOARDS..LOL…KINDA ….I miss the signs, all the time…I’m sure the tourist don’t see them as well…..THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE…MORE AND BIGGER SIGNS !!!!

  3. I’m a tourist, I see the signs, and I report the violators. It’s ridiculous that people think that they are “exempt” from common sense rules.

  4. Kathryn, thanks for this perspective. Nice to know there are tourists who care. Keep on coming!
