    Some people don't care...they feel entitled to do whatever they want wherever they want and feel no obligation to clean up after themselves. They don't learn, other than to be sneaky and dishonest.

    There are 38 million people in Ca and most of them live within striking distance of the E Sierra. Do the math. When there's a place you can 4 wheel to that has goldens someone is going to drive there and try to kill them all. It's what people do. If they could do it, they'd have a lottery with a cash prize for the guy that killed the last one.

    Maybe now there will be a movement to improve the road in there...that way those that lack the appropriate vehicle can get there and do some damage too.

    Mikel,

    Unfortunately, you are right. There will always be those who just don't care about the consequences of their actions. I'd like to think that's a minority of people, but even a small group of folks can have a serious impact on a small fishery like that.

    I was encouraged by the fact that the DFW made the long trek back there to say hi and make sure we were doing things right. That should provide a deterrent for some.

    Milt,

    You're not kidding. That is one treacherous road. There are some spots that would be a deal breaker for anyone with a fear of heights. The turns in those switchbacks are extra tough. Making a multi-point turn with very little room on the side of a mountain is no easy task. It certainly added to the adventure of the trip.
