I got this about six days ago.

When I lived in Utah I used to travel with a motorcycle gang in Southern Utah. We rode mostly dirt bikes and trucks, some guys would bring down an ATV.

The national parks have a policy, riding only on authorized trails, river beds and bare rock.

Riverbeds are dead, no life, as is bare rock.

The regular looks like sand, it is not. It is crytogamic. The reason vehicles are not allowed anywhere else is to protec the cryptogamic soil, which can take up to a century to recover!

I believe the policy of no traffic, including hiking or mountain biking, on any cryptogamic soil whether it is in a national park or not. We should protect land on the BLM ground and state parks as well.

The irony is that we are so successful as a species, we have too much. Too many people, too many vehicles.
