I understand trying to balance things. But we don't need anymore wilderness.
Wilderness is not the great save all everyone thinks it is. We already have more than enough.

I totally agree with you tim, I am tired of everyone wanting more wilderness areas. I have pictures of when I was 2 and 3 years old on the Uncompahgre in Colorado in high traffic areas and it is still the same. The only difference is the trees and bushes are a lot bigger. I'm tired of them taking away our public lands. Brick Wall,)

I don't get how can designate an area as wilderness, yet still leave access open to logging and claim not to infringe on recreation. If it is currently roadless, I see how you can claim you aren't restricting access for recreation, but I don't see how they can claim to still leave it open for logging.
That article lacked some important details.
