"Obama's NPS Holds Tourists Hostage" from 10/8 is a sad commentary on how park rangers are closing off the public parks and access roads we paid for.
What I can't figure out is, why hasn't there been resistance by the American people? Masses of cars stopping on the highway to see Mt. Rushmore when they close off the viewpoints. Convoys of locals and tourists leaving Cooke City. What would our Founding Fathers say if they were alive today? Is this what they fought for?
Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all ages. -- General George Washington
BTW - if you have never been on the Cooke City Highway, put it on your bucket list! My mother, Alice, grew up on a homestead in Yellowstone County, and no matter how many places she visited in the world, this road remained her favorite.
