SIXTI This is unfortunate. I will make a few calls myself.
I do not want an end to be brought to my several Moab pilgrimages. This is one place where I am truly wild and free.

Rubicondon53 Lucky you living in Monticello, we plan on retirement in that region in a very few short years.. We've been to the Moab region twice in the last three years, and are planning another trip for December of '13.. Thanks so much for bringing our attention to this issue... Most people here on the eastern seaboard haven't a clue as to what the Colorado Plateau is all about.. I'll be making my calls... Thanks again.

RockTrout I'm a bit surprised we don't have more traction on this issue. If you travel to the Moab area and like expedition style travel, this is huge!

Utah Moab Area 1.4 Million Acre Monument Proposal

I'm from Monticello in SE Utah. The Outdoor Industry Association recently sent a letter signed by over 100 businesses asking him to declare a "Greater Canyonlands" National Monument. It is 1.4 million acres (slightly less than the state of Delaware). It would certainly have a detrimental effect on jeeping and other access to the area. Below is the list of businesses that are promoting this. Camp Chef has withdrawn support after hearing from unhappy jeepers/OHVers/mountainbikers/outdoorsmen. Please help out by sending emails/posting on FB pages/calling these companies. I've also included a map put together by OTBP maps with the roads/trails that are likely to be affected.

For more info go to BRC
