    Thankfully Teddy Roosevelt disagreed..

    You probably don't like that BLM land grab either..
    To be honest, neither do I..
    Many of you call them 'poachers' and I don't blame you..
    I've seen their garbage messes right next to national forest campgrounds, sure to attract Bear..
    Pack out what you pack in and then some.

    Utah state parks are at least as well run as fed parks and they are not used as political pawns by power hungry presidents.

    to some extent I can agree.
    However, most States could not afford the wildfire suppression costs. State taxes would go sky high or Feds would have to pick up the tab.

    If it wasn't for Lincoln commissioning the early park sojourns, which TR was a part of, along with TR's legendary legacy in saving these Natl Parks..Utah is an incredible Mother Nature paradise, brought to you by the Eisenhower Interstates..Mormons do as great a job as the Israelis in making the desert come to life..Did you think there wouldn't be repercussions with this false equivalency of Repubs?

    Re: Utah national parks to open Saturday with state aid

    Why wouldn't we assume that the Feds will always pick up the tab??
    Next time their is a "Blue" disaster, like Sandy, I want Repubs to come out right away in public and scold/trash/detail Dems for their charge of Pork..
    Peter King type Repubs are still hot over Sandy..
    Colorado flood relief should have gotten there right away.

    Re: Utah national parks to open Saturday with state aid

    I liked your OP but the first Paragraph is like saying Obama threw a snowstorm at western SD..
    I liked it because Utah is such a special state and thanks for bringing it up..
    I've lost count over the decades of how many times I've driven that Escalante ridge..
    A hair-raiser was going east from Boulder..1st gear all the way down.

    "Ten days after a federal government deadlock shut down Utah’s national parks, bleeding tourism-dependent businesses and towns, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert inked a deal late Thursday and wired funds Friday morning to the Interior Department that should have park gates swinging open by Saturday morning."

    I haven't done much research on the issue but I find it hard to believe states couldn't find some way to raise revenue for it.

    Even if the federal government MUST maintain wildfire suppression infrastructure, that doesn't mean they have to actually own and manage all aspects of the land.
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
