    The New York Times tackles this issue of land access on public lands in the west with this article and 7 minute video.

    Alternate TextMotorized, “off-highway” (ATVs, MX dirtbikes) vehicle purchases have exploded in the past decade. And our public lands are groaning beneath the surging, internal-combustion-powered flock.

    This is why I choose to hike or mountain bike. Wilderness areas are not for motors. Aren’t motors what we’re escaping from?

    Let’s hope with increased environmental sensitivity and insanely high gas prices, this trend abates in 2008.
