Example text

The damage has already been done. If a site has been lightly used, it is best to find a heavily used site or move on to a new site and let the lightly used site recover. (3) Camp on slickrock or in a dry wash, weather permitting. These are the optimal sites since there are no lasting impacts. (4) Do not camp in areas where microbiotic soil is present. (5) Do not remove vegetation to level or smooth out sleeping platforms. (6) If debrisbranches, rocks, leaveshave been cleared to make a campsite, return it to its original location before moving on.

FLPMA asserted as well that outdoor recreation could be considered a principal or major use of public lands. This was far different from the traditional multiple-use concept of BLM lands. 2 million of those acres might have wilderness qualities. These acres became Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs). Over the next eleven years the BLM conducted an intensive inventory of the WSAs. 9 million were worthy of wilderness designation. The BLM wilderness inventory process has come under attack from environmental groups who felt that the BLM did not use the congressional definition of wilderness.

It is my belief that by offering alternatives to the popular canyons, stressing the importance of wilderness advocacy, and harping on the need for low-impact camping techniques, Canyoneering 2: Technical Loop Hikes will help spread the visitation load and mitigate the impacts on the land. The reader may wonder how the routes were chosen. I spent an extensive amount of time in each area: sixteen months in the San Rafael Swell, eight months in the Dirty Devil, four months in White Canyon, three months in Dark Canyon, and close to two years in the Escalante.
